London based German-Turkish composer and producer Alev Lenz has been making waves owing to her extraordinary creativity, with voice, piano, and experimental electronics taking a central place. She has a third album on the way aptly titled 3 and slated for a September 27th release through SA Recordings. Featuring twelve songs, mostly acapella, 3 is “an exploration of empowerment and recent motherhood, a powerful stripped-down work birthed through creative necessity and the challenges fresh parenthood brings”, describes the press release. “After becoming a first-time mother, Alev filled her notebooks with poems, drawings and music; ‘3’ is the culmination of necessity, limitations and desires of this moment in her life.”
Earlier this month, and following the release of ‘May the Angels’, Lenz released the album’s second single ‘The Chair’, serving as an ode to American writer, feminist and civil rights activist Audre Lorde and her text ‘The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle The Master’s House’. Take a listen to both now.
