Dear Reader

Dear Reader, aka Cherilyn MacNeil, returns with ‘Day Fever’ – the follow-up to her excellent 2013 album ‘Rivonia’ – in February. The album was recorded in San Francisco with Spoon and Mountain Goats producer John Vanderslice.

First single ‘I Know You Can Hear It’ is out now, accompanied by a video directed by Annikki Heinemann, who explains: “Dear Reader’s song deals with the theme of death, so we decided to tell the story of a young man who has died, and his transition into the next realm. Cherilyn and her band mates play four ‘ferrywomen’ who help guide the man to the afterlife, and rather than a place to be feared, it is a place where he can be free”.

The album is out on 24 Feb. Watch the video for ‘I Know You Can Hear It’ here:
