*ONLINE ONLY* Rise/it Aint Water (7in Vinyl)
Not yet reviewed.
Alison Mosshart (The Kills, The Dead Weather) has revealed details of a forthcoming 7-inch release on Domino. The vinyl release pairs her two debut solo singles "Rise" and "It Ain't Water" and is set for physical release on July 31st. "Rise," her debut solo track recorded for FacebookWatch show Sacred Lies, was released in April to widespread critical acclaim.
Fierce and fiery, a no-nonsense firestarter, Alison Mosshart is hardly a stranger to taking chances. Best known as one-half of acclaimed duo The Kills, when she's not moonlighting as Baby Ruthless, the gnarly lead singer of blues-punk foursome The Dead Weather, Mosshart is a forever moving force. Over the years she's collaborated with everyone from her Dead Weather bandmate Jack White to the Arctic Monkeys, Primal Scream, Gang Of Four, Foo Fighters, James Williamson and Mini Mansions. But her new and boldest move yet finds her embracing her solo bonafides.
For Mosshart, releasing music under her name is a new experience but an entirely thrilling one. It makes sense: Mosshart has been compiling a bank of unreleased music for more than a decade now. Back in 2013, Mosshart first wrote the initial sketch of "Rise," which finds the singer intoning, "When the sky is falling/and the sun is black/when the sky is coming down on ya/baby don't look back/we will rise." Recalls Mosshart: "I didn't ever forget it. I remember right where I was when I wrote it, sitting at my desk in London, missing someone badly." When the Sacred Lies team then sought out her skills for a signature song, she knew "Rise" had the right kind of vibe. "Rise" was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Lawrence Rothman.
For a multi-disciplinary artist like Mosshart — whose paintings have been shown in galleries across the world, and who recently published her first book, CAR MA, a collection of her art, photography and writing that doubles as a love letter to automobiles — working on a variety of projects, now including her own music, is exactly how she likes it. Currently, she is working with Jamie Hince on the next Kills record and dreams of the day in the hopefully not so distant future, (pandemic-willing) when they'll be back on the road with exciting new music to share.
