Swedish musician and composer Anna von Hausswolff has announced the release of a new album, following 2018’s Dead Magic. Entitled All Thoughts Fly, the new record, unlike her previous material, is a solo instrumental affair devoted and derived solely from the sounds of a single pipe organ, situated in Gothenburg. Set for release on September 25th through Southern Lord, All Thoughts Fly is inspired by a 16th Century garden in Italy, called Sacro Bosco (“Sacred Grove”). Anna explained its influence on the album:
“There’s a sadness and wilderness that inspired me to write this album, also a timelessness. I believe that this park has survived not only due to its beauty but also because of the iconography, it has been liberated from predictable ideas and ideals. The people who built this park truly set their minds and imagination free. All thoughts fly is a homage to this creation, and an effort to articulate the atmosphere and the feelings that this place evokes inside of me. It’s a very personal interpretation of a place that I lack the words to describe. I’d like to believe Orsini built this monumental park out of grief for his dead wife, and in my Sacro Bosco I used this story as a core for my own inspiration: love as a foundation for creation.”
‘Sacro Bosco’ is also the title of the first single to be unveiled, an otherworldly track offered with an accompanying video directed by Gustaf and Ludvig Holtenäs. Watch it now.
