Martha Tilston has announced details of her new album “Nomad” which will be released via Squiggly Records on May 12th. Her seventh album to date, it will be preceded by the double A-side single Nomad Blood/Little Arrow, and there’ll be UK tour dates to follow. Previously part of the duo Mouse, Martha Tilston – who is the daughter of Steve Tilston – has gone on to pursue a nice little solo career, receiving a nomination for Best New Act at BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards alongside collaborations with Zero 7, J-Spool and Tru Thoughts Records. The new album was born while Tilston and her collaborators were recording her previous album “The Sea” hidden away in a seaside cottage in Cornwall. Listen to (both sides of) the new single, which also has rather fetching cover art, below.
