Pre-Order Sarah Cracknell’s Kites via Official Store
Although the Albumism team hasn’t even remotely had enough of Sarah Cracknell’s sublime Red Kite LP released a year ago, the always enchanting singer-songwriter and Saint Etienne siren has now blessed us with yet another aural treat. Exclusively available on 10” vinyl and set to arrive September 30th via Cherry Red Records, Kites features nine reimagined versions of tracks from Red Kite, with new vocal and instrumental flourishes incorporated throughout.
“I wanted to make something more pastoral and cinematic,” confides Cracknell in an official statement. “Ennio Morricone, baroque pop and the string arrangements of Robert Kirby were among our touchstones. My producer and co-writer Carwyn Ellis would send instrumental tracks over and I fell in love with them.” And considering her prolific track record and divine recorded repertoire, we are destined to fall in love with Kites too.
