Following last year's exquisite 7" single of floaty-pop loveliness, 'Jogalong', Rozi Plain returns with 'Actually' - the new single taken from her forthcoming, exquisite third album, Friend.
The video for 'Actually' is presently premiering via Q Magazine. We made the song available to download for free, for one week only, in exchange for signing up to the new Rozi Plain mailing list; the free offer has now expired, and the song available to purchase online.
'Actually' recently won the Rebel Playlist on BBC 6 Music by 76% of the vote, and has been described by DIY Mag as “about the most gorgeous, all-encompassing introduction imaginable for this London-based songwriter”. And we agree. In fact we're nodding right now. Nodding at the computer screen. Nodding.
The album will be released on Lost Map Records on May 4th 2015 - on LP, CD and download. A spellbinding reaffirmation of the London-based, Winchester-born singer-songwriter as one of the most unique and original voices in UK alt-folk, Friend features contributions from Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor and members of François & The Atlas Mountains among many others. Rozi Plain will prepare for the release of Friend with a UK and European tour, including shows together with This Is The Kit (whom Rozi will both open for and perform as a member of), ahead of summer festival appearances.
