Annie Booth Unveils New Single ‘Magic 8’ Taken From New EP ‘Spectral’ Out Via Scottish Fiction and Last Night From Glasgow
Scottish Fiction and Last Night From Glasgow are proud to present Magic 8, the lead single from Annie Booth‘s new EP Spectral.
Lead single Magic 8 showcases perfectly Booth’s lyrical frankness as she concedes “This is all I have to you and it’s nothing”, atop elegant acoustic guitar playing and building instrumentation; exposing herself and her shortcomings to the listening with a touching sincerity. It is a song which freely admits the writer does not have the answers; delving into the feeling of hopelessness and melancholy which permeates in all our lives, whether we admit it or not.
Spectral, the EP from which Magic 8 is taken from, follows on from 2017’s triumphant debut album An Unforgiving Light, and is a far more intimate collection of songs. Working with acclaimed producer Chris McCrory (Catholic Action, Siobhan Wilson) Spectral showcases bittersweet notions set against sparse and creeping instrumentation. Affecting and dense in subject matter,Spectral traces Booth’s maturing development as a songwriter, both musically and lyrically.
Magic 8 is out digitally now on all platforms via Scottish Fiction and Last Night From Glasgow.
Spectral will be released on limited edition 12″ purple vinyl in selected Scottish record stores on Record Store Day 2019, with a digital and CD release worldwide on 10th May 2019 via Scottish Fiction and Last Night From Glasgow.
