Gwenno releases new album title-track "Tresor"

Gwenno has unveiled the title-track from her forthcoming album Tresor as the third taster of the record.

"Tresor" follows previous singles "Men An Toll" and "An Stevel Nowydh", and lands with a self-directed video.

Gwenno says of the single, ""Tresor" is a song questioning what makes us human, and the conscious choice that we have to either have a positive or negative impact on our environment and everything around us. We live in a chaotic world and what impacts on our ability to make positive decisions is largely circumstantial, the song is about trying to connect with our ability to do the right thing at a point where everything is in-flux, in crisis, and the foundation of our society is changing. How do we connect with our responsibilities and instinct to commit to the collective in a largely individualistic society? "Tresor" is an homage to an older, analog world, the soundtracks to European cinema, and a final fair farewell to the 20th Century."

Tresor will follow Gwenno's 2018 album Le Kov, and was written in St. Ives, Cornwall before the pandemic in 2020, and completed in Cardiff during the pandemic with her co-producer Rhys Edwards.

"Tresor" is out now. Gwenno's new album of the same name will land via Heavenly Recordings on 1 July, and is available to pre-order now.
