On Monday, April 27th, Tracey Thorn will release Songs From The Falling , a new EP comprised of eight songs and sketches that were written for Carol Morley’s forthcoming debut feature film “The Falling.”
Today, Rolling Stone has the exclusive premiere of the entire EP:http://www.rollingstone.com/music/premieres/hear-tracey-thorn-channel-teenage-girls-for-songs-from-the-falling-ep-20150424
“It sounds more like music I made with the Marine Girls or on my first solo album A Distant Shore,” Thorn told Rolling Stone. “I think that’s because I was deliberately trying to inhabit the mindset of these teenage girls, the subjects of the film. So it took me back into myself, in a way that I found really enjoyable.”
Recorded in the north London home studio she shares with her partner Ben Watt (who engineered the recordings), Thorn added guitar and piano, wrote the songs and then – playing everything herself – allowed herself one take only on each of the instruments. “I wanted to leave in all timing discrepancies to try and capture the loose freeform feel of an untutored school performance,” she adds. The final mixes were done by Bruno Ellingham.
“The Falling” movie is out in theaters from April 24 in the UK. A US release of the film is slated for later this year.
