The new mini-album CHAPTER 1: FOREVER, FOR NOW by Anoushka Shankar is available for streaming and on limited edition vinyl from Friday October 6 on the LEITER label. Recorded at Berlin's celebrated Funkhaus complex, the four new tracks make up the first chapter in a trilogy of mini-albums Shankar will be writing and releasing as an evolving story between tours.
Featuring guest appearances by Nils Frahm (piano, glass harmonica, harmonium, slit drum), Gal Maestro (bass) and Magda Giannikou (accordion), the album was produced by praised Grammy-decorated singer and composer Arooj Aftab, with whom Shankar had previously collaborated on 'Udhero Na', from the deluxe edition of Aftab's 'Vulture Prince' album.
The album's release comes only days after the first stop of Shankar's North America tour, which runs through October ahead of her EU tour coming in Spring 2024.
