Hailing from Marika Hackman's forthcoming debut album entitled We Slept At Last (available via Dirty Hit on February 16) emerges "Before I Sleep".
The single embodies the very intrigue of the twelve-track album, which has been produced by long-term collaborator Charlie Andrew (Alt-J). Both classic and contemporary, Hackman in "Before I Sleep" is transparent in vocal strength, resonating a dark narrative that lingers long thereafter.
Alongside the beautiful soundscapes known to Hackman, the debut album in full will be released with an art booklet containing a series of powerful images by photographer Glen Erler, who has in turn been inspired by the same dark narrative as We Slept At Last. To celebrate, the album release (which includes the performance of the record) will parallel with an exhibition of the collection of photos in Camden's Cob Gallery on February 17.
