Julie Fowlis – Alterum
Machair Records Ltd – 27 October 2017
Julie Fowlis has announced her fifth studio album Alterum which will be released worldwide on 27th October 2017. The latin titled album which translates as ‘otherness’ is a subtle suggestion that this record is a departure from what has gone before.
There are no more clues as to how that musical twist will reveal itself musically, although we know that Julie is something of a dab-hand now at creating music that crosses-over into other genres and styles. There will also be special guests making an appearance including Mary Chapin Carpenter.
The album was Engineered by legendary musician Calum Malcolm and the following album trailer has just been shared:
‘Fowlis’s ascent to international stardom, putting Gaelic folk on the world music map, is evidence that a sublime voice transcends language and culture’ – The Guardian.
