After meeting in November 2013, Ed Tullett and Novo Amor (Ali Lacey) quicklybegan writing to form the basis of what is now “Heiress”, their full-length collaborative record, out November 10th via AllPoints.
Recorded around the release of their two widely lauded collaborative singles (“Faux”, 2014 and “Alps”, 2016), the pair worked sporadically in intense week-long sessions in Cardiff spilling over Lacey’s old and new home-studios, tearing songs down and building them back up again. “Heiress” is noticeably the product of nearly 4 years work – sprawling, ambitious and strikingly deep, it’s a collection of songs both meticulously calculated and deeply felt. The record swings between delicate, poetic falsetto and vast walls of towering beauty – something single “Cavalry” does all on its own. “Silvery” is a vital, grandiose inauguration, and the magical “Terraform” a celebratory realisation that you’re back on your own Earth again.
Both are solo artists in their own right – Welsh alt-folk artist Novo Amor’s second EP “Bathing Beach”, was released in May after a string of stunning self-released singles, whilst Oxford-born and Brighton-bred songwriter and producer Ed Tullett’s 2016 album “Fiancé” precedes a flurry of upcoming solo, collaborative and production work.
The physical format of the album will be Double Vinyl in Gatefold Sleeve.
