Chelsea Williams has announced the May 8th release of her new album Beautiful and Strange, via Blue Élan Records. A testament to the Los Angeles singer/songwriter’s catchy pop sensibilities, Beautiful and Strange also draws on her eclectic musical palette with hints of roots, jazz and psychedelia. The album’s debut single “Red Flag” perfectly evokes the frenzied, caution-to-the-wind intensity of new love.
“My music tends to be as diverse as my musical taste,” explains Williams. “I never want to confine myself creatively. Whether it’s hiring a string section or taking a chance on exploring sounds that were foreign to me before, like hiring a saw player or using analog gear like tape machines and space echo.”
