London-based singer-songwriter Holly Henderson released a retro infused single, ‘The Planes’. Henderson also announced her second album, The Walls, which will be out early 2023 and is the follow up to her debut album, Monday Green.  

Henderson shares the following about her upcoming sophomore album:

“This album sits within a sense of place. As a songwriter, I can only speak of my own thoughts of home and belonging. I suppose this record is a wandering eye over the fleeting moments from the last few years, of when I felt at home, and when I didn’t. When I felt like the walls were tumbling, when they kept me safe, and when they became my prison. I learned the only way of breaking these patterns was to let people step over the threshold.

Due to the intimacy of the songs, I wanted to preserve the organic nature of the words and the arrangements. The heart of every song was recorded live, from the front room of a farmhouse in Sevenoaks – everyone facing each other, hearing each other, and working together. The sounds you hear are preserved in the moment that they happened. Tentative and selective moments were never changed in post. The other-worldly elements, synths, sounds, etc, were still captured live. 3 to 4 of us, tinkering with analogue synths, percussion, voices, iPads, etc, while the songs played. Rowan’s sensitivity as an engineer and producer, preserved every magical moment in his safe hands, while every person in the band shines throughout, regardless of trying to make this happen during the times of Covid, nothing was missing.”

‘The Planes’ is the first look into The Walls. ‘The Planes’ is more introspective with touches of psychedelic elements, a stark difference when compared to previous songs. We can’t wait for the new album.
