The powerful, melodic voice of Yorkshire songwriter Elaine Palmer will be familiar to many AUK readers.  Once again, she delivers an excellent vocal performance on ‘Let Me Fall (Revisited)’, clear, pure and engaging throughout.  In this live recording of the song, Peter McDonald contributes a lovely, languid guitar solo, climbing above Palmer’s rhythmic strum.

Palmer told AUK about the song: “‘Let Me Fall’ is a track all about losing yourself in the minds of others. I am thrilled to have revisited this song and recorded a version out in San Diego featured on the upcoming ‘Half Moon Rising record’. Here we perform live from The Georgian Theatre.”

The single appears on the forthcoming new album ‘Half Room Rising’, which was recorded in San Diego.  We can expect the new release on 17th May 2024 and it promises to be a fine follow-up to the acclaimed album ‘The Land In Between’.  On the new record, Palmer worked with producer and engineer Mike Butler (Norah Jones, Ray LaMontagne, Phoebe Bridgers, The Pretenders), who helped to showcase her distinctive voice.  Supported by a range of talented musicians during the San Diego sessions, such as Leonard Cohen’s violinist Bobby Furgo, the resulting songs are, perhaps, Palmer’s best yet.  After a childhood immersed in music in an isolated village on the North Yorkshire Moors, Palmer has gathered all her influences to craft timeless songs.  Enjoy.
