Shares New Video For ‘Around The Bend’
‘Goodnight City’ out now on [PIAS]
Plays 14 UK & Eire Dates in January
“As sweetly melodic as it is dramatic with tinges of dark humour.” – The Line Of Best Fit
“Wry and sung without regret, it’s a suitable opener for a meticulously arranged downbeat set in which her distinctive vocals sit centre stage.” – MOJO
“Wainwright is always a compelling vocalist, variously evoking Patti Smith, Debbie Harry and Piaf.” – Uncut
“Upliftingly powerful”– The Guardian
With the release of her wonderful new album, ‘Goodnight City’, January 20th on [PIAS], Martha Wainwright shares the brand new video for lead single ‘Around The Bend’. She teamed up with her cousins, Vinnie Dow, Sylvan and Lily Lanken, and Kathleen Weldon to create the DIY video.
The celebrated songstress is set to take the UK & Eire by storm on her forthcoming tour in January, including two shows with Ed Harcourt in February at the Roundhouse in London and Celtic Connections in Glasgow.
‘Goodnight City’ is the follow up to Martha’s 2012 release ‘Come Home To Mama’ and has already drawn critical acclaim across the world from The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Uncut, MOJO and The Times. Martha wrote half the songs on the album while the other half were written by friends and relatives: Beth Orton, Glen Hansard, Rufus, Wainwright, Michael Ondaatje and Merrill Garbus of tune-yArDs.
