Anna Von Hausswolf Signs to City Slang

Anna Von Hausswolf has signed to City Slang. Her debut album Singing From The Grave held comparisons to Kate Bush but her next album, Ceremony will surprise everyone. Singing From The Grave saw Anna Von Hausswolf gain critical acclaim in her native Sweden but the pristine and operatic artist confirms that Ceremony saw her take influences from musicians such as Elizabeth Fraser, Jefferson Airplane, PJ Harvey, Earth, Barn Owl, Nick Cave and Diamanda Galás among others.

Ceremony is to be released on June 17 through City Slang. Deathbed is one of the more impressive and breath-taking experimental tracks from Ceremony and can be heard here. It’s a nine minute track making it the longest piece of music to be released this year as of yet. Try and hang on until the end as this is the part when it gets really good.
