Beth Orton will release Weather Alive, her first new album in six years, on September 23 via Partisan. It's her first album for the label and also her first self-production. Featuring on it are jazz poet Alabaster dePlume, drummer Tom Skinner (The Smile, Sons of Kemet), Shahzad Ismaily and bassist Tom Herbert (The Invisible).

"Through the writing of these songs and the making of this music, I found my way back to the world around me, a way to reach nature and the people I love and care about," says Beth. "This record is a sensory exploration that allowed for a connection to a consciousness that I was searching for. Through the resonance of sound and a beaten up old piano I bought in Camden Market while living in a city I had no intention of staying in, I found acceptance and a way of healing.”

The first single is Weather Alive's dreamy title track, a dream whose spectral vibe is echoed in Eliot Lee Hazel's magic hour music video. Watch that below.

Beth is on tour in the UK and Europe this summer, including dates opening for Alanis Morissette. Those are listed below.
