The Year I Disappeared is the first song to be taken from The Glass Child's forthcoming third album that's available to pre-order via a Pledge campaign. It's a beautifully fragile track that starts with a solitary piano before blossoming out as the vocals come out to play out a dramatic tale that's a taster for a record that she describes as being about "STILLNESS • ACCEPTANCE • DEVIATION • LIGHTNESS"
The Glass Child is the non-de-plume of Swedish "songwriter, recording artist, wanderer, dreamer, writer and author" Charlotte Eriksson who has already two albums - I'd Like To Remain A Mystery and I Must Be Gone And Live Or Stay And Die - under her belt as she prepares to release her third full-length recording. She's also a published author.
The intriguing introduction to the album promises that the record's ambitious but deeply personal aims "I wanted to turn my life into my art. My very existence into a poem. This is my story – it’s been a beautiful fight. It still is." If The Year I Disappeared is anything to go by, it's going to be an incredibly intense and emotional journey listening to the album.
