Hannah Peel has unveiled new single ‘Archid Orange Dwarf’.

The Northern Irish artist and electronic composer’s third album is a seven-movement odyssey composed for analogue synthesizers and full, traditional 29-piece colliery brass band. Mary Casio: Journey to Cassiopeia, released Friday 22nd September 2017 via My Own Pleasure, explores one person’s journey to outer space, by recounting the story of an unknown, elderly, pioneering, electronic musical stargazer, and her lifelong dream to leave her terraced home in the mining town of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, to see Cassiopeia for herself.

The artwork for the album has been designed by Grammy award winning designer Jonathan Barnbrook (David Bowie collaborator on albums Blackstar and The Next Day. With the complete brass band and rhythm section for the album recorded live on location in The Barnsley Civic Theatre with Peter Gabriel’s Real World studio team, useful in mapping Mary’s intergalactic passage into another world.

Hannah says of the album: “I wanted these huge slabs of planetary sounds to echo the excitement and wonder of our human need to explore and develop. Outer space is where only a select few can reach; yet it is somewhere we dream of going, or perhaps collectively, simply wanting to know what is out there. The unparalleled vastness in our galaxy is as equally melancholy and desolate, as Mary’s lonely voyage away from all she knows”.
