Australian artist Indigo Sparke has announced her debut album, Echo, with its lead single “Baby.”
The song features backing vocals and harmonies by the album’s co-producer Adrianne Lenker, synth by Big Thief’s James Krivchenia and glockenspiel by Nick Hakim.
Of the song, Sparke says “I think love is quite sadly beautiful and haunting, to be at the mercy of the tides of love, to let it turn you inside out and distill you into something magnificent or strip you bare. I think this song came from dreams and endless love letters sent back and forth across oceans in the forms of songs. So much hope and fear and a burning star shining with just that one persons image… and the lullaby, there is only love. Sometimes it feels like you are canoeing in the river in the sky searching for this person who truly sees you and sometimes it comes along in the most unexpected ways. It can feel so achy. The longing.“
Echo, which was co-produced by Sparke, Lenker and Andrew Sarlo, is a deep and intimate ode to death, decay and the restless feeling of wanting to belong to something greater. The album is available for pre-order now and due January 29th.
