On Alela Diane’s forthcoming album About Farewell there are no real hidden meanings and the album title makes it very clear what album is about. It focuses around her relationship and eventual break-up with her then husband Tom Bevitori who also played in her band Wild Divine. The couple divorced over a year ago now and the album explores often painful episodes that caused Alela to put pen to paper often whilst on tour and still with Tom. That cathartic release is not just present in the lyrics but also in the music which sees Alela and guitar taking prominence…finding herself again.
Here is a recent live performance of The Way We Fall performed at Les Bouffes Du Nord, Paris.
About Farewell is released on July 29th via Believe Recordings
