Sarah Neufeld, the violinist and composer known for her work with Arcade Fire and Bell Orchestre, has announced a new album. Detritus is set for release on May 14 via Paper Bag. Neufeld has also unveiled the album’s lead single, ‘Stories’. Check it out below, along with the album’s cover artwork and tracklist.
The new album features collaborations with Jeremy Gara, Pietro Amato, and more. “I was inspired by both a sense of interior aloneness, and a sense of deep intimacy,” Neufeld explained in a statement. “Within both, a profound questioning of identity and intention, and ultimately, a grieving over one’s former sense of self. The stories we’ve told ourselves that we can no longer believe. Nestled within deep layers of comfort, familiarity, and solace, I’m able to repeat myself again and again, never learning, never looking back. Simultaneously becoming wiser and more ignorant as the years wind on, beauty and grace exist even here, in this rift.”
Detritus marks the follow-up to Neufeld’s 2016 LP The Ridge.
