Multi-talented musician and singer-songwriter Sudan Archives is sharing the first single in support of her anticipated debut studio album. Known as "Confessions," the Stones Throw artist’s latest features production from Wilma Archer and cello work by Clíona Ní Choileáin, while its narrative and lyrical content are said to revolve around a "crisis of conscience." "Confessions" comes to us a year after her previous project, the Sink EP, landed on streaming services and similar platforms.
"I made a couple of songs that are gonna be on the album with another producer. We both produced it. He plays the piano more than I do, so I would like to have him onstage with me playing the part that played on the song," Sudan Archives explained to Okay Africa in 2018, opening up about some of the artistic differences between her past EPs and her forthcoming LP. "I just feel like I’m going to be working with other producers and musicians that are gonna come in the studio and lay down their ideas, but for EP1 and EP2 it was just all me messing around on my iPad and my computer."
You can listen to Sudan Archives’ latest major single "Confessions" above, and stay tuned for more previews of her debut album. Sudan Archives’ first official full-length effort is scheduled for release later this year.
