Today, American singer-songwriter and actress Alison Sudol shares her intimate new single “Peaches.”
Released ahead of the theatrical release of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore, in which Alison reprises her role as Queenie Goldstein, and ahead of her upcoming support dates with Goldfrapp at London’s Royal Festival Hall on April 14 & 15, “Peaches’” is the first single taken from Alison forthcoming album due later in the year.
The single gives us a first glimpse into Alison’s upcoming album, which she wrote, co-produced and recorded with London based multi-instrumentalist, producer, composer Chris Hyson, who is also half of adventurous collective Snowpoet in Wales at Giant Wafer Studios, during Summer 2020.
“We came up with the foundation of ‘Peaches’ in the studio in Wales, sitting in the sun during an insane heat wave, looking out over sheep fields,” says Alison. Opening about the inspiration behind the track, she unveils; “the framework of the song came almost immediately but the words were slow. Several months later, with a nearly finished record, ‘Peaches’ still had no lyrics. My partner and I were talking about trying again for a child after our loss. I kept dreaming of this little baby girl. The dreams were so vivid, so real it was like she was right there, but I had no idea if I could bring a child into the world. The dreams made me long for her so much it was dizzying, but painful too, knowing it might never happen. The lyrics finally came. Three weeks later our daughter was conceived”.
