New Music | Beth Orton - Moon

New Music | Beth Orton - Moon

Only two more months to go before we get a new album from British chanteuse Beth Orton. The first single off of Kidsticks (out May 27th via Anti-) is titled “Moon,” and it’s a delightful trip-hop, skip and a jump back to the style she honed working with the likes of William Orbit and the Chemical Brothers.

Although the singer-songwriter is labeled as a folk-artist (and a damn fine one at that) Orton has never been a musician to rest on her laurels. She has released five solo albums, her first was the incredible Trailer Park back in 1996, and has reshaped her sound with every LP.

Over the past two decades Beth Orton has consistently maintained a solid fan-base with only a handful of albums to her name. Although many years seem to pass between each release her collaborations, work in film, and songs featured in hit television shows, have kept the talented artist in the spotlight.

I am really looking forward to this album. Here’s to hoping she tours the US this year (psssst Newport Folk Festival).
