Shirley Collins has released a new single, ‘Hares on the Mountain’. It’s set to appear on her upcoming album Archangel Hill along with the previously shared ‘High and Away’. Give it a listen below.
“I’ve recorded this twice before: once a rather trivial version collected by Ralph Vaughan Williams; the second time I rewrote the melody and recorded it with Davy Graham in 1965,” Collins explained in a statement. “This time I was looking to bring out the mysterious and wry quality that lies underneath.”
Archangel Hill is due for release on May 26 via Domino.
