After taking an almost decade long hiatus from music making - a period in which she became a mother to five children and began working on her now thriving clothing label - Anna is now making her return to music, set to release her first full-length record ‘Nobody Knows Us’ on Valentine's Day 2020.
Recorded in Lyttleton, New Zealand by Ben Edwards (Aldous Harding, Marlon Williams, Julia Jacklin) ‘Nobody Knows Us’ is an album that wears its heart on its sleeve.
Taking inspiration from folk writers of the 60s and 70s, from Sandy Denny to Nick Drake and Sibylle Baier, as well as more contemporary counterparts like Midlake and Weyes Blood, Anna has created a collection of songs that stay true to her belief in the value and power of art.
About this track...
"It’s asking for love in the face of different ways of seeing the world" says Anna, explaining the writing process behind Tried So Hard - a song that grapples with the insecurities so many of us have in understanding our capacity to love and be loved.
