After a prolonged absence and major changes in her life, Isobel Campbell returns with her freest, finest album yet in There Is No Other, released 31st January 2020 via Cooking Vinyl.
“One word I had in mind for this record was ‘psychedelic’, Campbell says. “A dreamy, otherworldly feel.” Take the lead single, ‘Ant Life’; shimmering folk-pop with woozy synths over a metronomic pulse with decorative handclaps. Or the forthcoming second single ‘Hey World’, a silken southern-soul odyssey that builds to a soaring, gospely climax. Subconsciously or otherwise, each song acknowledges the different paths that Campbell has travelled down the years: the twists and turns, various guises and collaborations. There Is No Other is also a very grown-up record; a life has been lived.
