Beerjacket releases his new album, ‘Silver Cords’ on Scottish Fiction.

A full five years since the release of his last album, ‘Darling Darkness’, the new 12 song collection comes with a book of 12 short stories, each a companion for the songs on the record.

Of the project Peter Kelly says, “At some point in the writing of Silver Cords, I decided the record would live in a book and that each song would be accompanied by a short story inspired by its lyrics.”.

The singer, once of Glasgow indie combo Pupkin, started writing the album in 2015, taking three years to complete. “Story by story, approximately once a month, the songs’ siblings entered the room. My imagination has superimposed details on the real-life buildings that inspired settings and, in some way, the stories play out there interminably now on three to five minute loops,” he says.
