Louise Rutkowski releases a new single, ‘Late Sun’.
Taken from her forthcoming album, ‘Home’, it’s the first new material in six years from the former Hope Blister and Sunset Gun vocalist, who is perhaps best known for her part in 4AD music project, This Mortal Coil.
Three years in the making, ‘Home’ is the follow-up to Rutkowski’s debut solo album, ‘Diary of a Lost Girl‘. That 2014 release followed up an album ‘Hope’ under the name The Kindness of Strangers, which also featured film composer Craig Armstrong OBE and released in the US by Interscope Records.
Made possible by a crowd-funding scheme, the forthcoming long-player 10 tracks were co-written and produced with musician Irvin Duguid, who has previously worked with Gun, Paolo Nutini, Fish and Stiltskin.
The philosophy behind its lead single is, we’re told, that age is no barrier to anyone, especially women, in realising their ambitions.
“I believe that one is always transitioning and developing,” Rutkowski says, “and that age is not a reason for giving up on dreams or thinking you can’t do something because it’s too late. It’s never too late.”
‘Home’ is due for release on October 9th, with single ‘Late Sun’ available digitally now.
