JULIE BYRNE – ” The Greater Wings “

Posted: April 30, 2023 in MUSIC

Singer Songwriter Julie Byrne has announced her first new album in six years. The follow-up to 2017’s “Not Even Happiness” is called “The Greater Wings”, and it comes out July 7th via Ghostly International. Its first single, ‘Summer Glass’, is out today alongside an accompanying video

Byrne started recording “The Greater Wings” with her long time collaborator Eric Littmann, who passed away in 2021. She completed the album with producer Alex Somers in the Catskills.

“My hope for “The Greater Wings” is that it lives as a love letter to my chosen family and as an expression of the depth of my commitment to our shared future,” Byrne shared in a statement. “Being reshaped by grief also has me more aware of what death does not take from me. I commit that to heart, to words, to sound. Music is not bound to any kind of linear time, so in the capacity to record and speak to the future: This is what it felt like to me, when we were simultaneous, alive, occurring all at once. What it has felt like to go up against my edge and push, the love that has made it worth all this fight. These memories are my values, they belong with me.”
