Gia Margaret Announces New Album ‘Romantic Piano’, Shares Video for New Single

    Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist Gia Margaret has announced a new album called Romantic Piano. The follow-up to her 2020 self-titled LP will arrive on May 26 via the musician’s new label home, Jagjaguwar. Lead single ‘Hinoki Wood’ is accompanied by a stop motion video that features clay animation by Gaia Alari. Check it out and find the album artwork and tracklist below.

    Speaking about the new track, Margaret said in a statement: “‘Hinoki Wood’ feels like it was made with colors I haven’t used. (And I happened to be burning Hinoki incense when I recorded it.) Hinoki aroma is known to reduce stress, tiredness and stimulate the brain. In a way, I wanted these songs to do the same for myself/for the person listening.”

    Romantic Piano was written with a beginner’s mind,” Margaret explained. “For this collection, I thought: ‘What if I could clear my head of all the things I have learned about the piano? What would those songs sound like?’” She added, “I wanted to make music that was useful.”
