SUN’S SIGNATURE – ” Sun’s Signature ” Record Store Day 2022

Posted: February 21, 2022 in MUSIC

The Cocteau Twins frontwoman Elizabeth Fraser, who has undergone a slight re-emergence in recent years, will release her first new music in more than a decade on Record Store Day via a “finally finished” 12-inch vinyl EP featuring five songs by Fraser and her partner Damon Reece.

Not much is yet known about Fraser’s new music with Reece, though at least one of the songs appears to have been previously released, though possibly in a different form. The first of the EP’s five tracks is “Underwater,” the same name as an electronic single Fraser released in the U.K. in 2000.

And two of the other songs “Golden Air” and “Make Lovely the Day” appear to have been performed by Fraser during her rare sets at the U.K.’s Meltdown Festival in 2012, along with “Underwater,” in appearances that had been billed as mixing new music from an anticipated solo album with Cocteaus classics.

The new music will be the first released by Fraser since her one-off 2009 single “Moses,” a song she’d written with Reece with their friend Jake-Drake Brockman that was released following Brockman’s death that year in a motorcycle crash.

The EP’s release comes after Fraser has become more musically visible in recent years.

Sun’s Signature is a 5 track EP of music by Elizabeth Fraser (Cocteau Twins) and Damon Reece (Spiritualized, Echo & the Bunnymen, Lupine Howl). Pressed on black vinyl, housed inside a single sleeve jacket and printed inner sleeve.

Set to release an EP on Partisan Records in April under the name “Sun’s Signature.”

Limited to 3,700 copies, it will be available exclusively in store on Saturday April 23rd, 2022.
