Aldous Harding 'Designer'

4AD artist Aldous Harding’s third full-length, Designer, will drop on April 26th. Ahead of the album’s release, Harding has shared a video for “The Barrel.” Designer is the follow-up to Harding’s previous album Party. The singer/songwriter, will tour behind the album, staring April 8th in Brooklyn, NY.

Designer finds the New Zealander hitting her creative stride. After Party, Harding came off a 100-date tour last summer and went straight into the studio with a collection of songs written on the road. Reuniting with John Parish, producer of Party, Harding spent 15 days recording and 10 days mixing at Rockfield Studios, Monmouth and Bristol’s J&J Studio and Playpen. From the bold strokes of opening track ‘Fixture Picture’, there is an overriding sense of an enigmatic artist confident in their work, with contributions from Huw Evans (H. Hawkline), Stephen Black (Sweet Baboo), drummer Gwion Llewelyn and violinist Clare Mactaggart broadening and complimenting Harding’s rich and timeless songwriting.
