One of the most unique artists currently operating in the music industry, acclaimed English singer-songwriter Beth Orton delighted her legions of fans today with the announcement of her new, hugely anticipated sixth studio album Kidsticks. The record, due out this May 27th via ANTI-records, was produced by FUCK BUTTONS’ Andrew Hung and mixed by David Wrench (Hot Chip, Caribou) and see’s the 45-year old artist returning to her ‘folktronica’ roots. Having already been described as a potentially ‘career defining’ album, Kidsticks was reportedly inspired both by the wide-open nature of Los Angeles (where it was recorded) and the spirit of Beth’s earliest recordings. Judging by her previous work, it seems we may be in for something special.
