Les Étoiles is the project of singer-songwriter David Fitzpatrick (originally from Bridgnorth in Shropshire). Alight, Alight is the fourth studio album that is out now via Records On Ribs. Full streaming is available on his bandcamp website. Listen below.
With only sparse piano arrangements for accompaniment, these songs are thoughtful reminiscences of time spent in Wales, London and Shropshire (and, in the case of Where We Will Live, a dream of an idyllic life in rural Italy). Featuring songs both old and new (although only the opening track, Empty Carriage, has been heard before), Alight, Alight serves as a fitting retrospective of David’s songwriting to date; even the title recalls that of his first album and suggests the closing of a circle, or the completion of a long journey home.
