ALESSI'S ARK are to return with a third album The Still Life on Monday 15th April 2013.
Travel, adventure and personal revelation mark the new album by singer/songwriter Alessi Laurent'Marke of Alessi's Ark. The Still Life is a work both lucid and heartbreakingly lovely, a sonic landscape that roams a wide range of emotions, with (as the songwriter explains), 'Nature and love, as common threads'.
"I wanted to create a musical landscape that varied in sound,' Laurent-Marke says, 'but an overriding feeling of 'stillness' remained throughout the album. I also wanted to step back from playing acoustic guitar and immerse the songs in very different sound settings from previous recordings.
'The phrase 'the still life' has always resonated with me,' says Laurent-Marke of the album's title. 'In my mind 'The Still Life' is what we're all aiming for, the chapter in our lives that we find peace and understanding, within us and in our surroundings.'
The Still Life will be released 15th April on Bella Union. New photo and album tracklisting below.
