• Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    In this almanac appear stories of love, renewal, the importance of community and our relationship to the earth. Shadowing these lighter themes are darker truths of untold atrocities committed by settlers on indigenous Australians during colonisation, the mass hysteria regarding a Scottish witch-hunt, flourishing love and good old-fashioned heartbreak.

    The album weaves a compelling musical tapestry balancing contemporary influences with classic, folk-rooted song writing and is the third studio album by Anglo-Australian quartet Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo.

    This is the physical CD version of Almanac which is delivered in a triple gatefold card sleeve featuring the stunning artwork by Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini.

    A free download of the album, plus the lyrics booklet are included with every purchase.

    I wrote this song when back in Bridgetown (South West of Western Australia) in my childhood home. I could hear my parents in the background pottering around the farm. It's a song about exhaustion, a longing to slow down and the importance of taking time out to be with loved ones. It's also about the depth of love you can feel for someone.

    Now this song has been used as the theme tune to BBC 2 drama series The Shadow Line.

Who am I now without your love?
Who am I alone in a day that has gone?

Without your love to return upon,
I'm a featherless bird in a sky so absurd

Why oh why's there so much movement
When all I long for is to lay down in love's pause

And dream I know something of truth
Oh hide me deeper in your peace further
and lose me in this greed I've found in your need


from Almanac, released February 7, 2011
