Swedish musician Karin Park has streamed her brand new single, the ** Traces Of Me, which you can listen to below.
it's taken from Park's upcoming album, Private Collection, a set of nine re-recordings – with radically different instrumentation – of tracks from her seven-album back catalogue, which was released through Pelagic Records earlier this month.
"What’s now a whisper, once was a song," enthuses Park, who has been described as the 'Scandinvaian Nico' and by dark ambient legend Lustmord as a 'force of nature'. "A fire can only burn for so long.» In this video I’ll let you in on a grown woman’s broken heart. The song Traces Of Me opens my new record Private Collection and is an invitation in to the deepest of me.
“This record is very much a journey in solitude that I’ve been longing to make. These are my favourite songs from 20 years of writing, re-recorded as I hear them now. Many of these versions are how I play them live, alone with my synths, Mellotron and organ."
Private Collection is largely a solo affair, although Park's husband Kjetil Nernes (Årabrot) feaures on guitars and Andrew Liles (Nurse With Wound) on synths, as well as Benedetta Simeone on cello.
