Produced at the legendary Rockfield Studio in South Wales by Jimmy Robertson (the man who made the “…Scorpio Rising” collection) and mixed by John Askew (who also worked with the band on their debut full-length, Fossils and Other Phantoms) the new Peggy Sue album will be released early next year, on January 27.
“Choir of Echoes is an album about singing. About losing your voice and finding it again” Peggy Sue explain. “Voices keeping each other company and voices competing for space. The call and response of the kindest and the cruellest words. Choruses. Duets. Whispers and shouts.”
If you’ve ever wondered “Peggy Who?” then here’s your answer. The past two years have allowed the band time to experience a vast array of new sights and sounds which have translated wonderfully into their new work. Choir of Echoes sees Peggy Sue come back around on their best form to date and provides an emotional venture into a realm of sensibility that this band have to offer.
