The new album, Performances, is set for release on October 13, 2023, via Saddle Creek.

Land of Talk, the Montreal-based outfit led by Lizzie Powell, is on the verge of releasing their fifth LP. Entitled Performances, the album promises to be the most urgent and personal of Powell’s career. The lead single, ‘Your Beautiful Self,’ comes through the speakers as an effortless stream-of-consciousness track as it steadily builds to reveal a gentle chorus.

Of ‘Your Beautiful Self,’ Powell explains:

“This was one of the earliest songs I wrote for the record and it came out of the session I did at my friend’s house I rented in Sutton, Quebec. There’s a little bit of Echo and the Bunnymen’s ‘Under the Killing Moon’ in here. We kept reworking the song in different studios and different contexts but it really clicked when I swapped out guitar for piano. Taking things out and allowing myself to be spare made it work. I wanted to be anti-virtuosic here. Also, my voice goes up the octave on this song in a really fun way. It was a weird and fun personal challenge to get my voice to start out that low.”

Look for Performances, on your favorite digital service on October 13, 2023. ‘Your Beautiful Self’ is out now.
