NEWS: Anna B Savage releases surprise new single and announces E.P

Anna B Savage has this week released a brand new single, ‘Since We Broke Up‘ that will appear on an E.P, These Dreams, due out on 24th September on City Slang Records.

Hot on the heels of her debut L.P A Common Turn, which only came out in January, the writers’ block that preceded the record has clearly been well and truly been broken through and the floodgates are open and gushing forth.

Described by Anna herself as the most “jubilant” song she’s ever written, it starts typically for one of her songs, just that incredible voice and her subtle guitar for texture that peaks and troughs in the verse followed by double-tracked vocals in the chorus “I hope I never fall in love again/I want to live alone but I can’t afford the rent“. By the second chorus it opens up like a John Grant song, funky synths, and rapid drums, and finally, her voice falls into a cave, echoing back out, but falling away into nothing. A beautiful and brilliant return.

Lyrically, she is telling an ex she is happy to be single, happy to be looking after herself, although there is a slight element of trying to convince herself of that, talking to “the Argonauts” in the books she is reading as she has been alone.

Anna plays End of the Road Festival later this month and is on tour in October and November. Tickets are available here.
