“Never Saw Him Again” by Mary Lattimore

Never Saw Him Again by Mary Lattimore is Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day'
Never Saw Him Again by Mary Lattimore

Ahead of the release of her new album Hundreds of Days, out this Friday via Ghostly International), composer/harpist Mary Lattimore has shared her single “Never Saw Him Again” gives another glimpse of the blissful and singular approach to harp-playing, conjuring vivid and compelling soundscapes, that set Lattimore apart from other soloists.

In addition to her own music, Mary also writes harp parts for songs and recordings, performing and recording with such great artists as Meg Baird, Thurston Moore, Sharon Van Etten, Jarvis Cocker, Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, Ed Askew and Fursaxa. She has been a part of soundtrack projects including the Valerie Project, Lopapeysa, a film by David Kessler set in Iceland, and the film score for Marina Abramovic: the Artist is Present, a documentary about the artist. In March 2013, she accompanied Nick Cave’s beautiful horse soundsuits for the 100th anniversary of Grand Central Station in New York City.

Now, in 2018, from a restorative station — a redwood barn, nestled in the hills above San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge — emanates ‘Hundreds of Days’, her second full-length LP with Ghostly International. The record sojourns between silences and speech, between microcosmic daily scenes and macrocosmic universal understandings, between being alien in promising new places and feeling torn from old native havens. It’s an expansive new chapter in Lattimore’s story, and an expression of mystified gratitude.
