Tracey Thorn, known for Everything But The Girl and her contributions to Massive Attack's Protection (as well as just being Tracey Thorn), has signed with Merge Records for the release of Love and It's Opposite on May 18th. The album will be released on Strange Feeling Records in Europe.
The album features appearances from Jens Lekman, AL Doyle (Hot Chip), Leo Taylor (The Invisible), Jono Ma (Lost Valentinos), and Cortney Tidwell. It's being described by Strange Feeling Records as "stark and folky electronica." It was produced by Ewan Pearson.
As for now, Tracey's just keeping the music real. "It’s a record about the person I am now and the people around me. About real life after forty,” she said.
