Lotic announces new EP, ‘Sparkling Water’, shares single: Listen

It features reworks of tracks from the Berlin-based artist's second album 'Water'


Lotic has announced details of a new EP, 'Sparkling Water'. Stream the lead track 'Always You (Sparkling)' below.

Featuring reworks of tracks from the Houston-born, Berlin-based artist's second album 'Water', which was released last year, the four-track EP also boasts new, original brass arrangements. Recorded at Live at JRS in Berlin, the four-track release will be released via fabric's in-house label Houndstooth on 1st July.

Arranged by Hilary Jeffery, the brass compositions that feature on the new release feature tuba by Orlando de Boeykens, trombonist Baron Arnold and trumpet/trombone by Kelly O'Donohue. 

Speaking about the release in a post on Instagram, Lotic said: "i wanted to strip back the production from 'water' and put the compositions center stage, featuring bright, sparkling brass"

Also released via Houndstooth, 'Water' was described by Lotic, aka J’Kerian Morgan, as a "a tender meditation on love’s losses and lifeforce, timelines, bloodlines and resilience." Released in October last year, it came at the end of a period that she explained involved "having to be adaptable, while being dragged through the trenches".

Three years prior to the release of 'Water', Morgan released her debut album, 'Power', via Tri Angle.
