Rhiannon Giddens has announced a new album, ‘They’re Calling Me Home’ set to be released on April 9th.
On Friday she released a lyric video of the title track; the record features her partner and multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi. The record which is being released via Nonesuch Records, isn’t the first her and Turrisi have released together. In 2019 the pair released ‘There Is No Other’ and have received rave reviews whilst touring together as part of Celtic Connections.
The multi-talented Giddens hops from one project to another; just yesterday she announced that the documentary about the formation and touring life of her super-group ‘Our Native Daughters’ was going to premiere on the Smithsonian Channel later this month. Giddens is also a founding member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops and has even had a dabble in acting as she played the character of Hallie in season five and six of the hit TV show Nashville - another project which allowed her to showcase her singing capabilities.
This latest album by Giddens and Turrisi is available to pre-order now via Nonesuch Records and the black and white, wintery video is available to view now.
