A Fine Frenzy to Release New Album ‘Pines’ in September 2012
Alison Sudol, better known as A Fine Frenzy to the music world, has announced her third studio album, 'Pines.' The disc will contain 13 tracks and is scheduled to be released this fall.
'Pines' will be the follow-up to 2009's 'Bomb in a Birdcage.' As one can tell from the title, the album is based on the theme of nature, especially the redwood forests and lush landscapes of Northern California and Washington's Cascade Mountains. Sudol explains that 'Pines' deals with the hectic pace the world lives in during the 21st century.
"Sometimes I feel like the world has been strapped onto the back of a giant rocket and it's hurtling us into the unknown at a pace we're not entirely equipped to deal with," Sudol says in a press release. "All kinds of things are falling off, good and bad. It's a crazy, exciting, terrifying time -- so much is changing, and fast. Yet some of the most wonderful things in the world are slow -- rivers and seasons and turning leaves and growing older with the ones you love."
She continues: "I wanted to create an environment where a person could retreat to, somewhere vivid and real where their minds and hearts could wander freely. I wanted it to be a place you could go to feel, like a quiet spot in a forest or the sea on a cloudy day."
'Pines' will drop in stores on September 18. No tour plans to promote the album have been announced yet.
