NEWS: Lael Neale shares new video for ‘White T-shirt’ and new dates including supporting Ben Howard

Lael Neale has shared the official video for ‘White T-Shirt’, which was recorded during the Star Eaters Delight sessions, her brilliant album of 2023, released earlier this Spring. The song was written and composed by Neale and produced and mixed by Guy Blakeslee. An atmospheric strum, sewn with Neale’s haunting vocal, invested with gleaming poetic couplets that capture memories with vivid clarity. It’s wonderful.

Blakeslee says of the song, ‘White T-Shirt’ dates back a number of years to when I used to follow Lael around LA to all of her barely publicized performances. The song never ceased to silence the chatter in the room. There was nothing I could add to this performance. It’s a raw gem that stands alone and cuts through the noise.

The beguiling Star Eaters Delight reveals an expansion of Neale’s sonic collaboration with producer and accompanist Guy Blakeslee and arrives on the heels of her Sub Pop debut Acquainted With Night,  which won international acclaim for its crystalline vocals, clever songwriting, and excellent use of Omnichord to build a world of beautiful reveries.

Star Eaters Delight was written by Neale, with arrangements and production by Guy Blakeslee. The recordings were made on cassette in Virginia and mastered by Chris Coady in Los Angeles. Lael Neale has also extended her international tour schedule for 2023 in support of Star Eaters Delight.
