Lydia Ainsworth, the acclaimed singer/songwriter/producer, announced her third album Phantom Forest today, due out May 10. The record, the follow up to 2017’s Darling of the Afterglow and her first since relocating from Toronto to Los Angeles, is themed around the precarious state of nature in the modern world. The Fader announced the album today and premiered the video for the first single “Can You Find Her Place”.
Ainsworth describes the track as “a song about Mother Nature’s elusive yet powerful strength in the face of adversity. I’m singing a number of the songs on Phantom Forestfrom the perspective of Mother Nature and her views on humanity’s hubris, however on ‘Can You Find Her Place’ I am using my voice as a kind of Greek chorus singing about where you can find her strength, setting the scene for Phantom Forest.” The ornate video was inspired by Botticelli’s painting “Primavera.”
Ainsworth produced Phantom Forest herself, and wrote all the songs with the exception of the closing track “Green Is The Color,” a Pink Floyd cover, and “The Time” and “Give It Back To You,” which she co-wrote with Kyle Dixon of Survive (Stranger Things).
Phantom Forest is due out May 10 and is available for pre-order HERE.
