Two years ago we introduced British Brighton-based singer-songwriter Oliver Spalding and the debut EP Unfurl. Now he announced the release of the first full-length. Novemberism is out on November 15th via Monotreme Records, and was written and recorded with producer Ed Tullett (Novo Amor). We already shared title-track; “Xanax” is a new excerpt.
“The album focuses on a certain period of time in my life and the things that happened around me,” says Spalding. “My honesty in songwriting is key. The aim of this album was to be raw and emotional. Emotions are scary and no one wants to face them, and that’s what I wanted the album to feel like – something that is uncomfortable but also beautifully revealing.”
