American singer-songwriter and actress Alison Sudol has shared the personal new single, ‘Peaches’.
‘Peaches’ is an intensely intimate homage to maternity. The elaborate, yet soothing arrangement around Alison’s vocal harmonies.
“The dreams made me long for her so much it was dizzying, but painful too, knowing it might never happen.”Alison Sudol
The track arrives ahead of her upcoming support dates with Goldfrapp at London’s Royal Festival Hall on 14 and 15 April, which is also a day before the UK film release of “Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore”, in which Alison reprises her part as Queenie Goldstein.
“We came up with the foundation of ‘Peaches’ in the studio in Wales, sitting in the sun during an insane heatwave, looking out over sheep fields,” says Alison.
With regards to the motivation behind the track, “the framework of the song came almost immediately but the words were slow. Several months later, with a nearly finished record, ‘Peaches’ still had no lyrics. My partner and I were talking about trying again for a child after our loss. I kept dreaming of this little baby girl. The dreams were so vivid, so real it was like she was right there, but I had no idea if I could bring a child into the world. The dreams made me long for her so much it was dizzying, but painful too, knowing it might never happen. The lyrics finally came. Three weeks later our daughter was conceived”.
’Peaches’ is the first single taken from the forthcoming album due later in the year.
