While Au Revoir Simone are on extended hiatus, Annie Hart is back with her second solo album, A Softer Offering, which will be out December 13. "I wanted to give listeners that chance to breathe, to relax.  A soundtrack for painting or lying in the grass," says Annie. "I thought a lot about what music I play for myself when I want to make a moment feel complete. There’s just something different when you play soft music during these ordinary spaces in life, and I wanted to make a soundtrack for that."

You can get a clear picture of the kind of soft, spacious music Annie's offering on the new album with "Don't Breathe for Me," a song she says is "about having the strength to move on from a difficult time." That song premieres in this post and you can listen, along with "Wilderness Hill," below.

Annie will play a record release show at Brooklyn's Union Pool on December 13 with Drew Citron (Beverly, Public Practice). Tickets are on sale now.
