Anna Mieke has announced her new album Theatre will be released on November 18th, 2022, via Nettwerk. The stunning eight-song collection envelopes listeners in the warmth of her world, radiating with an intense heat that lies closer to the desert or the jungle than her hometown of Wicklow, Ireland. Theatre is the surreal soundtrack of a vast personal plain steeped in nostalgia, family, memory, death and dreaming—where gritty reality and romanticism meet. Lush new single “For A Time” and its accompanying Louise Gaffney-directed video, featuring a Disco Yeti, are the perfect showcase of the album’s dream-like visions. “It’s a song of humid heat, burning summer, a pool. Rotting fruit, flies, the density of a greenhouse in August, carpeted stairs, a diving board. But also loss, and that feeling of fading and forgetting, of passing on,” explains Anna Mieke. “It reflects that feeling of nostalgia for a time you never actually experienced, or a person you never had the chance to meet, but feel you know well.”
