Beth Orton is back with her seventh studio album, Weather Alive. It's a record that collates memories and experiences spanning a lifetime, with stories that touch on struggles, on healing and of beauty.
The acclaimed British artist, into her third decade in the game, is renowned not only for her distinguishable, fragile vocal, but for a series of genre-defying collaborations; from her early output with Chemical Brothers and Andy Weatherall to Bert Jansch and Jim O’Rourke.
Over the course of her albums to date, the BRIT Award winner, and Mercury Prize nominee, resolutely refutes categorisation, weaving from a hushed, folk-informed storytelling to dark, brooding esoteric experimentalism.
