We are very pleased and excited to announce the forthcoming release of Alight, Alight – the fourth album by Les Étoiles.
It will be available here from 1st July for free download as well as on iTunes, Spotify, TIDAL and anywhere else you would want to listen.
Alight, Alight is Les Étoiles’ most beautifully unadorned album. With only sparse piano arrangements for accompaniment, these songs have a quiet intensity that brings to mind not only the solo work of Talk Talk’s Mark Hollis but also early Low at their most austere.
Alight, Alight is a collection of thoughtful reminiscences of time spent in Wales, London and Shropshire and, in the case of ‘Where We Will Live’, a dream of an idyllic life in rural Italy.
Featuring songs both old and new, with only the opening track ‘Empty Carriage’ having been heard before, Alight, Alight serves as a fitting retrospective of David’s songwriting to date. Even the title recalls that of his first album and suggests the closing of a circle, or the completion of a long journey home.
To coincide with the release, Les Étoiles will be performing at the Gallery Café in London on Saturday 2 July.
