Portland-based folk singer Alela Diane has finally announced the release date for her fourth studio album, About Farewell. The record will come out on Diane’s own label, Rusted Blue Records on June 25. The album is essentially a sonic memoir as Diane used the music to processes her divorce. This process included the subsequent dissolution of her band Alela Diane & The Wild Divine of which her ex Tom Bevitori was a member. 2011′s album of the same name was a stunning bit of work, a clear step forward for Diane from her older, more homespun recordings.
About Farewell appears even more polished and reflective, a tender but powerful take on the ways life moves and changes around us. Stream the first track, “The Way We Fall” below and look for her album this summer and check out the Instagram of her handwritten tracklist above.
