In a personal exploration of the human experience, indie-pop singer-songwriter Edith has unveiled the release of her latest album, In this house we celebrate heartbreak.
With 18 soul-baring tracks, In this house we celebrate heartbreak offers an intimate glimpse into Edith‘s life and emotions, chronicling her journey from the ages of 20 to 22.
Edith, who began writing songs at the age of 11, draws from a lifetime of musical influences. After gracing stages across London, including the Notting Hill Arts Club, she released her first EP at 18, paving the way for her musical journey. Edith expresses her hope for universal connection: “I want people to relate to it, as I believe we all experience life differently but end up feeling the exact same way about stuff.”
A standout in the album is the track ‘God Complex,’ earning the coveted title of Track of the Week on BBC Music Introducing. Edith describes it as a cathartic anthem, a musical refuge she turns to when facing life’s challenges, empowering herself through its poignant lyrics and compelling melody.
Pop anthem ’21’ stands out as another highlight, inspired by a text message probing into Edith’s life. With raw and powerful vocals, the song delves into the complexities of modern relationships, resonating with listeners on a deeply personal and universally relatable level. Accompanying the album release, Edith has unveiled official music videos for ‘Necklace,’ ‘Over It,’ and ‘The Day We Met’.
“I started writing this album when I was 21. Most songs are written instead of texting or jotting down my feelings in my diary; instead, I would pour my heart into songs on my piano”, shares Edith. The result is a musical creation that captures the highs and lows of her personal journey, showcasing her unique approach to storytelling.
In this house we celebrate heartbreak is now available on all major streaming platforms, promising a captivating and immersive musical experience for fans of authentic and emotive storytelling.
