Abigail Lapell announces new album Anniversary & shares title track/video

Toronto singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Abigail Lapell returns with the announcement of her new album Anniversary, set for release on May 10 via Outside Music.

An evocative collection of original love songs, the album balances upbeat earworms with elegiac ballads, ultimately emerging as an earnest celebration of commitment. Anniversary was recorded at the 200-year-old St. Mark’s Church in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario and was produced with Great Lake Swimmers’ Tony Dekker, who helped shape the project’s spooky, resonant sound while lending his voice to a few spellbinding duets.

Alongside the announcement, Abigail Lapell also shared the album’s lead single and video, ‘Anniversary Song.’ Recorded live with her band in a 200-year-old church, the track features an in-house harpsichord along with drums, bass, electric guitar and layers of doubled vocals and harmonies, brought together with lyrics that celebrate the syntax and symbolism of commitment.

Lapell says, “‘Anniversary Song’ was inspired by the idea of mashing-up traditional anniversary gifts (cotton, leather, diamonds) with the periodic table of elements (iron, carbon, silver) to celebrate the physical and symbolic bonds of togetherness.” A play on romantic “chemistry,” ‘Anniversary Song’ highlights some of the album’s recurring dualities: literal and symbolic, earthly and otherworldly.
