Last month, Anna of the North returned from a moment of silence with her new song "Someone Special," along with news of her new EP.
That new project, titled Believe, arrived Friday, and it turns out the title track is actually a cover of "Believe" by Cher. The low-tempo rendition is simply magical, setting the foundation for the rest of the EP, made up of five stripped down tracks, all of which embrace the singer's lo-fi and delicate prowess.
"This EP and the songs are very personal and inspired by the time we're in right now," says Anna of the new EP. "Every song was chosen 'cause they mean a lot to me, and have done for a very long time. 'Lover Ghost' was my jam when I moved to Australia all by myself and 'Believe' is my forever encore. Me and my fans have been dancing to that song after every show."
She continues: "This whole thing is kind of a throwback journey and a tribute to my fans. And it makes it even more special that everything is recorded at home and my dad is playing the piano. Just like the old days. When we were jamming together. Before I moved out, before Anna of The North was even a thing. Everything feels a bit weird and up in the air atm, and I just wanna close my eyes, lay down and think about different times."
