Anneke Van Giersbergen - New Solo Album Coming Next February

Dutch performer Anneke Van Giersbergen proudly announces The Darkest Skies Are The Brightest, a brand new solo album. The effort of 11 new songs will be officially released on February 26th, 2021.

The statement from Anneke as follows: I'm thrilled to announce that my brand new album will be called The Darkest Skies Are The Brightest. The release date is set for February 26, 2021. The title refers to the idea that, when facing personal challenges, we are forced to find answers to life's biggest questions.

"A while ago, my belief in Vuur saw me spend all my savings on recording our debut album, and taking the band on the road. After completing our first touring cycle, I realized that more Vuur would mean yet more, huge financial risks. To make matters worse, my long-lasting marriage unexpectedly saw a storm approaching. I instantly knew I needed to write music about fixing my life.

"With just my acoustic guitar and basic recording gear, I regularly retreated to a small house near the woods, just outside my hometown of Eindhoven. I let go of the pressures of what Vuur's future might be, and also devoted time to try and save my marriage. In that little cabin, I fell into the meditative process of writing a solo album. When I had written enough songs, I asked my friend and producer, Gijs Coolen, to help me finish the album.

"Throughout the completion of the album, my acoustic song-stories were fused together with an alchemy of panoramic strings, horns, and percussion. The first song will premiere very soon. And I can't wait to share it with you all!"

I enjoy her solo stuff. Besides, this album can't possibly be worse than that Vuur abomination was.
