SUN’s SIGNATURE – ” Apples ” (feat Elizabeth Fraser)

Posted: June 18, 2022 in MUSIC

Sun’s Signature, is the new project from former Cocteau Twins Elizabeth Fraser along with her partner Damon Reece, their self-titled debut EP comes out this Saturday via Partisan Records. Elizabeth needs no introduction. The unforgettable voice of the Cocteau Twins and This Mortal Coil’s haunting, epic cover of “Song to the Siren,” she is internationally recognized for her vocal contributions to Massive Attack’s trail-blazing “Mezzanine” LP – most notably their biggest hit, “Teardrop”. She has revisited this material live, to devastating effect, on the recent Mezzanine XXI world tour. 

This week they shared its third single, the seven-and-a-half-minute long “Apples.”

Previously they its shared its first single, “Golden Air,” which was also Fraser’s first original music in 13 years. Then they shared its second single, “Underwater,” via a lyric video. The song was originally released in 2000 as a limited-edition single.

The EP was unofficially announced in February and is due out on Record Store Day, with a digital release to follow sometime in July. The EP features Fraser’s 2000 limited-edition single “Underwater” as well as two songs that she performed at the 2012 Meltdown Festival, “Golden Air” and “Make Lovely the Day.”

Back in 2016, Fraser and Reece composed the score for the British TV series The Nightmare Worlds of H.G. Wells. Fraser’s most recent solo release was the 2009 single “Moses.” In 2020, she was featured on the Jónsi song “Cannibal”.

Reece has been the longtime drummer in Massive Attack, who Fraser has also collaborated with. He was previously a member of Spiritualized and Lupine Howl (an offshoot of Spiritualized), as well as Echo and the Bunnymen. He also recorded and performed with Baxter Dury, Goldfrapp, The Flies, Butch Vig’s 5 Billion in Diamond, and more.

The songs on Sun’s Signature have been in the works for over two decades, since the breakup of Cocteau Twins in 1997.
