Norwegian pop singer/songwriter Annie steps back into the limelight, with the opulent and sophisticated Dark Hearts. Her first full length release in a decade and the third album of her career, Dark Hearts is out on October 16th. It comes backed by three singles unveiled over the past few months, ‘American Cars’, ‘The Bomb’ and the tile track, which have had a very good reception with fans and media alike, including Pitchfork, Sunday Times, Guardian and NME.
Dark Hearts evolved over three years, a stop/start process which stemmed from Annie becoming a mother to two young children and her move from Berlin to Bergen. On the album, Annie collaborates with Swedish producer Stefan Storm, the architect of synth outfit Sounds Of Arrows, to create a collection of melancholy synth-saturated pieces packed with wistful reminiscences.
