Keeley Forsyth has announced her second album, Limbs, which is set for release on February 25 via The Leaf Label. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the lead single ‘Bring Me Water’, which is accompanied by a video starring Forsyth and dancer Calvin Richardson and directed and edited by Ross Downes. Check it out below.
“The world I wanted to create needed to be anchored firmly in reality,” Keeley Forsyth explained in a press statement. “At the same time the music needed to open free, poetic spheres for the listener, allowing room for their own associations. Limbs that marked out traces of time, in motion rather than static, allowing me to inhabit and flesh out the daily drama of existence precisely. Staying close to reality was something I learned from Antonin Artaud and Pina Bausch.”
Of ‘Bring Me Water’, she added: “The song picks up where ‘Start Again’, the final track on Debris, left off. It comes from a similar place, approached at a different angle, with the line ‘let me begin again’ central to that. It plots a journey from a place of darkness, but marks the point at which we choose to grow. Bring me water. Give me light. These are the basic things required to start that process.”
Limbs will follow Forsyth’s 2020 debut Debris.
