Emmy The Great announces new EP ’S’

The Londoner plans to follow up her most recent album ‘Virtue’ with the new EP early in 2015.

It’s been three years since Emmy The Great released her last album ‘Virtue’, and now the singer songwriter has announced plans to return with a brand new EP.

Simply titled ‘S’, her latest four-track offering will be released on 27th January through Bella Union Records, and will act as a precursor to her forthcoming third full-length.

Speaking of her forthcoming EP and album - which was constructed in six cities across the world - Emmy says that she’s taken a somewhat different approach to writing this time around: “My previous recordings were a reflection of my internal world,” she said in a press release, “but this is a record of me trying to engage with the outside. Over the course of travelling and touring for the last two years I inhabited many cities and landscapes. While I wrote this EP and the album that will follow, everything changed. As I wrote the songs I began to reflect more and more the world that I saw around me, incredibly bright, technologically breathtaking. I am curious about being a person in this world, and I tried to write that into the music.”

The tracklisting for ‘S’ is as follows.

1. Swimming Pool feat. Tom Fleming
2. Social Halo
3. Solar Panels
4. Somerset (I Can’t Get Over)

Emmy has also unveiled the first track to be taken from her extended-player in the form of ‘Swimming Pool’. Featuring the vocal talents of Wild Beasts’ own Tom Fleming, you can listen to her new song below.

Emmy The Great has also announced a handful of live shows to celebrate the release of her new EP. She’ll be playing four dates next January.
