MP3 of the Day #895: Emmy the Great

Since releasing her EP ‘S’ at the start of last year, anti-folk singer/ songwriter Emmy the Great has turned more pop, adding synths to her sound, a move that would have been unheard of in her 2009 ‘First Love’ days. ‘Second Love’, her third album following the release of the ‘Virtue’ LP in 2011, will be out next Friday on Bella Union.

Emmy is currently in the midst of an American tour, starting the West Coast leg of her time over on our side of the pond tonight, performing at the Bunk Bar in Portland. While on this tour, she’s been closing out her set every night with song ‘We Are Vanished’, which she says is a cover. While we can’t be sure that the act that goes by the name We Are Vanished doesn’t exist, Googling the name only leads you to Emmy’s own version of the song on Soundcloud, so our interest has been significantly piqued into who We Are Vanished is. Or are. Guess it’s a mystery that we’ll have to less Miss E Moss answer herself sometime. Until then, you can listen to and grab her version of ‘We Are Vanished’ for free from the Soundcloud embed below.

‘Second Love’ will be released on the 11th of March on Bella Union.
