Kelly Lee Owens has announced that she will release her debut album, ‘Kelly Lee Owens’, on 24 Mar. About time! Kelly Lee Owens is great. She is almost certainly better than you.

The album features a tribute to Arthur Russell, titled ‘Arthur’, of whom she says: “He wrote music and stayed true to his vision up until the day he died. He didn’t compromise as an artist, and those are the kind of people I look up to – people who know what they want”.

Newly released from the album is ‘Anxi’, a collaboration with Jenny Hval (also better than you, bad luck). Owens says of working with Hval: “It has been my most freeing and open collaboration so far, and my first time working with a female. It was a very powerful experience for me, I felt she brought something strange and quite beautiful”.

I bet you’d like to hear that, wouldn’t you? Well it just so happens I have it right here:
