The wait is over. Rolling Stone has the premiere stream of Aoife O’Donovan’s long-awaited new album In the Magic Hour.
The atmospheric songs from In the Magic Hour (which follows O’Donovan’s acclaimed 2013 debut Fossils) relay their narratives against gorgeous pastoral backdrops, like the sound of waves at night on “Magic Hour” or the romance of dusk on “Porch Light.” The sparse-but-intricate arrangements speak to O’Donovan’s conservatory training, but are delicately shaded with her pristine voice and smears of electric guitar or wisps of fiddle.
In The Magic Hour is out this Friday, January 22nd. Pre-order the record on CD/LP to receive 6 Limited Edition bonus tracks. The LP comes on translucent blue vinyl. You can bundle your pre-order with an exclusive nightlight, or pre-order from Apple Music / Amazon Music.Tags: Aoife O'Donovan
