Rejoice! Mirah's lastest album is in the works! Share This Place: Stories and Observations is a collective effort which includes the talent of Kyle Hanson and Lori Goldston (of Black Cat Orchestra and Shifting Light) and other instrumentalists, who have been performing under the name Spectratone International. The group will be playing a string of dates at Seattle's Internation Children's Festival this May, at the beginning of Mirah's summer tour.
The new album is said to be inspired by French entomologist Jean Henri Fabre. Mirah and co. have adopted Fabre's famed method of writing about insects in biographical format, implementing this concept in the lyrics to the new album.
Share This Place will be released with an illustrated lyric booklet and the short film Credo Cigalia. This film is one of twelve films by Britta Johnson, which are meant to be accompanied by the music on Share This Place.
Phil Elverum of The Microphones/Mount Eerie and Steve Fisk (Unwound, Screaming Trees, Nirvana) will be producing the album, which is slated for release August 7 on K Records.
