Kelly Lee Owens announces new album ‘Inner Song’
Techno producer/musician Kelly Lee Owens will release her second album Inner Song on 1 May via Smalltown Supersound…
Alongside the announcement, she presented its lead single/visual Melt!, which finds Owens diving deep into her own psyche – working through the struggles she’s faced over the last several years and exploring personal pain while embracing the beauty of the natural world.
Inner Song follows the 2017 release of her eponymous debut, as well as remixes of St. Vincent and by Björk, last year’s Let It Go / Omen 12″, and her recent collaboration with Jon Hopkins.
The album features an unconventional Radiohead cover, the voice of fellow Welsh artist John Cale, and the electro-pop inclusions of synths and psychedelia. In a press release, Owens said: “I wanted to create something that sounded hard but with organic samples. I felt those were great representations of what’s happening in the world, that every moment you’re breathing and sleeping, this is taking place.”
The vinyl is being released as a sesquialbum, or triple-sided album, with the fourth side etched by Kim Hiorthøy.
