SPELLLING Announces New Album ‘The Turning Wheel’, Unveils New Song ‘Little Deer’

    SPELLING, the project of Bay Area-based artist Chrystia Cabral, has announced a new album titled The Turning Wheel. The follow-up to 2019’s Mazy Fly is set to arrive on June 25 via Sacred Bones. Check out the lead single ‘Little Deer’ below and scroll down for the LP’s cover artwork and tracklist.

    Cabral said of the new song in a statement:

    “Little Deer” is definitely a thesis track. I feel that way because it not only showcases the greatest range of instrumentation that is featured on the album, but also because it accomplishes this strong impression of theater that I was striving for with the album as a whole. I’m especially proud of the lyrics. The challenge with the lyric writing was being able to speak to really large concepts like karma, reincarnation and the cycle of life without making the song sound burdened. I wanted the lyrics to match the grandeur of the instrumentation but still be easy to sing along to. I figured out a way to build the lyrics using a lot of abstract language that is still singable but odd in a way that 1 hope makes it memorable.
