Complete Mountain Almanac – the collaborative project of Norwegian-born, Sweden-based composer Rebekka Karijord and multidisciplinary artist Jessica Dessner, joined by her brothers Aaron and Bryce Dessner of the National – have shared a new single. It’s called ‘February’, and it’s the second preview of the forthcoming Complete Mountain Almanac LP, following ‘May’. Give it a listen below.
“’February’ is a song that began as a reckoning with the profound physical changes wrought by breast cancer and how they threaten to dismantle every aspect of life, and yet, somehow the spirit rises, remains constant, immutable, a force, like nature,” Jessica Dessner explained in a statement.
Vocalist Rebekka Karijord added: “To me, February is like an ancient myth. A road trip dance, moving between vulnerability and resilience. It journeys through layers of odd meters, restlessness and mystery, and then lands in a musical landscape of acceptance and clarity.”
Complete Mountain Almanac’s debut album lands on January 27 via Bella Union.
