The new Lotte Kestner album ‘The Bluebird of Happiness’ is set to be released on February 26th via CD/Digital. A specially priced pre-sale will be available within the coming weeks.
Lotte Kestner is the solo project of Trespassers William vocalist Anna-Lynne Williams.
The Bluebird of Happiness was recorded over the course of a year by Williams in a handful of bedrooms, as she transported her home studio from a number of locations around Seattle and nearby island Vashon. While retaining the delicate, intimate sound of her debut album, China Mountain, there are a handful of notable guest appearances on this new work. Damien Jurado duets on “Turn the Wolves”, Arnar Gudjonsson of Icelandic band Leaves accompanies on piano on “Pairs,” and Anomie Belle contributes violins to “Cliff.”
