Some of you may recall our introduction to Jo Mango back in 2010 (read it here). She had just released a 10″ vinyl single which was beautifully designed by Hanna Tuulikki (Nalle, Two Wings). One of the tracks was ‘The Black Sun‘ which was based on the movement of large flocks of starlings in the winter sky. Jo has now released a beautiful video for the song to mark the release of her new album Murmuration on November 5th. Like the song the video expresses a deep freedom heightened by the gaelic-psalm-style choir. Watch it below:
Also featuring on the album is the track Cordelia:
The album was recorded and produced by Adem Ilhan (Adem, Sliver Columns) who became a good friend of Mango’s during their time on the road together, performing in collaboration with Vetiver, Juana Molina and Vashti Bunyan in the Zero Degrees of Separation tour and with David Byrne, who curated Welcome to Dreamland, the sell-out show at Carnegie Hall in 2007.
Murmuration is set for release on 5th November 2012 via Olive Grove Records.
