"Free" arrives with a D.L. Anderson-directed visual that sees Sylvan Esso's Amelia Meath performing the song.
Meath says of their new outing, ""Free" was written all in one go - one of those magical moments of songwriting that happens once every hundred songs. Nick [Sanborn] knew it was the centrepiece of the record the minute I showed it to him. "We should call the record Free Love." It’s the centre of the record - a song about being obscured by someone’s loving impression. A mirror on a mirror."
Free Love will be Sylvan Esso's third studio LP, following on from 2017's What Now.
The album was written, recorded and produced at Sylvan Esso's own studio in the woods of North Carolina.
Sylvan Esso say of their new LP, "It’s a record about being increasingly terrified of the world around you and looking inward to remember all the times when loving other people seemed so easy, so that you can find your way back to that place."
