As ever the personal has often been political in Tracey Thorn’s work. “Nine feminist bangers,” Tracey Thorn jokes when asked to describe Record which following rave reviews released February 2.

To mark the occasion Tracey has shared a new video for the single “Sister.” “Filmed in London, it features me singing alongside an inter-generational cast of amazing women : Caroline, Ameera, Kate and Daniella. Press play!”

“I think I’ve always written songs which chronicle the milestones of a woman’s life.” Thorn says on the new album. “Different ages and stages, different realities, not often discussed in pop lyrics. If 2010’s Love and Its Opposite was my mid-life album – full of divorce and hormones – then ‘Record’ represents that sense of liberation that comes in the aftermath, from embarking on a whole new ‘no fucks given’ phase of life.” 

The album is driven along by Ewan Pearson’s unashamedly glittering electro-pop production, with drums and bass courtesy of Warpaint’s Stella and Jenny, with Corinne Bailey Rae and Shura also guesting. “I wanted it to be a record you’d listen to in the daytime,” Tracey says. “On your headphones or on the move. Not necessarily in the evening, or in your bedroom.”
