The Heather Findlay Band will release the seasonal collection I Am Snow, ready for pre-order on November 1.

The new collection will highlight the folkier and proggier end of Findlay’s writing from throughout her career, all recorded in a new session with her band as well as brand new material such as the “spellbinding” title track. These include a cover from the Sandy Denny-fronted Fotheringay, Winter Winds, and a new “chamber-esque, harp-spangled” version of Day 13: Sign, which Findlay co-wrote with Arjen Lucassen for the Aryeon album The Human Equation.

“I’m very excited about the new material, particularly I Am Snow,” Findlay told Prog. “The album is intended as a seasonal offering; a candle-lit, baroque-tinged companion for the winter month’s ahead.”

I Am Snow can be pre-ordered at Heather’s website, and will be on sale at all shows throughout November and December.
