Daughter vocalist Elena Tonra has announced details of her debut solo album! The self-titled record, under the name Ex:Re, will come out this Friday (30th November) via 4AD, and is being previewed by a video for first single ‘Romance’.
Speaking about the new record, Elena says: “Although the record is written for someone, a lot of the time it’s about the space without that person in it. In every scenario, there’s either the person in memory or the noticeable absence of that person in the present moment. I suppose it is a break-up record, however I do not talk about the relationship at all, and he hardly features in the scenes. He is only felt as a ghostly presence.”
The project will get its live debut this Wednesday (28th November) with a small London show at Hoxton Hall. A physical release will follow this week’s digital release in the new year.
