New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Cooperative Music)
Having left her native Sweden to live in New York in 2010, acclaimed singer/songwriter Anna Ternheim
reached out to her friend Matt Sweeney to play him the new songs she'd been writing. Stunned by their haunting beauty, Matt presented an idea he had harbored for some time; the two of them taking their business to Nashville where he would produce the album with Dave Ferguson, Johnny Cash's longtime engineer (best known for his work on Cash's final "American" albums).
It was here in early 2011 that work began on "The Night Visitor". Numerous Nashville legends contributed their talents to the recording including "Cowboy
" Jack Clement, Kenny Malone, Ronnie McCoury and Tim O'Brien. Will Oldham also dropped by to contribute backing vocals.
Already a huge critical/commercial hit in Sweden, "The Night Visitor" has been described as a story-telling album, and the songs are full of vivid images. Bow Your Head is a haunting, epic tribute to the beauty of nature, spending the day with your lover in a time of perfect unawareness of what the future might bring. In Walking Aimlessly Ternheim aims only to drift, and for people to drift with her. And then there are songs like the duet The Longer The Waiting The Sweeter The Kiss, originally written by Pat McLaughlin, sung by Anna and Dave Ferguson together with heart-wrenching sincerity.
"The Night Visitor" is released 14th May on V2 Records. See the attached PR for the full info.
