Published Jun 26, 2009As promised earlier this year, Stars' Amy Millan is coming back at us with her sophomore full-length. This fall the Canadian songstress will release Masters of the Burial on September 8 via Arts & Crafts.
This follow-up to 2006's Honey From the Tombs was laid down earlier this year in rural Ontario in what the press release calls "an intimate setting." Producer/sound technician Martin Davis Kinack (Apostle of Hustle/Broken Social Scene) was there to lend a hand, and apparently so too were several of Millan's long-time friends.
To cut and paste a bit from the press release, "the songs on Masters of the Burial show yet another side to this immensely talented songwriter's abilities... A work of true love and devotion immediately apparent in the warmth of Millan's angelic vocals and the depth of each song as they unfold."
A fall tour is currently in the works, but for now you can catch Millan in live action in Toronto on July 25 for a free show at the Harbourfront Centre, where she will play alongside label mate Gentleman Reg.
