Alabaster DePlume Shares New Single ‘Greek Honey Slick’ Featuring Tom Skinner

    Alabaster DePlume has released a new single, ‘Greek Honey Slick’, featuring drummer Tom Skinner (The Smile, Sons of Kemet). It’s the second preview of his forthcoming album Come With Fierce Grace, following ‘Did You Know’. Listen to it below.

    “Before I recorded GOLD, I dropped an enormous metal tin of beautiful Greek honey on my studio floor,” DePlume reflected in a statement. “Heart-broken, I gathered it into my hands to be disposed of, which took ages. But I chose to embrace this too – not knowing why. And it turned out that it was a blessing for the making of that specific album (though I won’t say why, just now). The key thing for me is: embracing what is, without demanding to know why. Abundance and how it is, and how it can appear, and made welcome.”

    Skinner added: “I don’t remember much about the details of the session at all, other than that it was a welcome oasis of spontaneous music-making in what had become an otherwise arid and disheartening year. A glorious and joyous exploration of sound in time.”

    Come With Fierce Grace is due out September 8 on International Anthem.
