TRIXIE WHITLEY announces new album ‘LACUNA’ and reveals new track ‘TOUCH’
NEW YORK, NY (January 4, 2019) – Trixie Whitley rings in the new year by announcing the release of her eagerly awaited album ‘Lacuna’. The forthcoming record was created in conjunction with Run The Jewels producer Little Shalimar and is set for release on March 29, 2019.
Along with the album announcement, today also marks the release of her new single ‘Touch’. ‘Touch’ is the second track of the new album to be unveiled after the teaser release of ‘Heartbeat’ in May 2018.
‘Touch’ is also the first part of a music video trilogy shot by visual artist Hannah Marshall, whose creative direction accentuated Trixie’s impressive performances at Pukkelpop & Lowlands last summer. Hannah Marshall is known for her black, monochromatic aesthetic and her work with bands such as The xx, Florence and The Machine, Savages and Goldfrapp. Look out for the first of three videos, premiering later this month.
Trixie will be touring Europe and North-America throughout 2019 in support of ‘Lacuna’. A first string of dates – including a series of Benelux shows – will be announced shortly.
‘Lacuna’ was entirely written and recorded in Brooklyn, NY where Trixie resides. Never afraid to defy genres, her work on ‘Lacuna’ with producer/engineer Little Shalimar and mixer Pat Dillett, sees Trixie pulling classic soul into a future world thru a fascinating, heady blend of hi-fi electronic sounds, hypnotic rhythms, and her trademark vocals with gut punching lyrics.

In a way ’Touch’ marks the starting point of that arc. It’s also a study regarding the universal qualities between polarizing elements. I’ve always been intrigued by that space between opposing elements which may seem like a void but contains a well of information — that’s why I’m calling it ‘Lacuna’… »
