From the cover of Palmer standing completely nude, to the album’s 20 tracks and the crowdfunding campaign that made the release possible, here we have an artist who continues to excite by challenging modesty. Palmer lays herself completely bare within her piano-based arrangements, confronting grief, motherhood and humanity with unflinching honesty and incredible humour. Both assured and vulnerable, Palmer’s voice is a source of immense comfort, and when she sings “Everything is going to be alright” on The Ride, it’s hard not to believe her.
There Will Be No Intermission is out March 8 via Cooking Vinyl UK.
