Loney dear released today

Described this week by the Independent as "an elegant, understated pop masterpiece", the new album by Loney dear is released today.

Self-titled, the album is the first from Emil Svanängen, the artist behind Loney dear, for six years and also his first for Real World Records.

The ten songs display the new found, or perhaps re-found confidence of Svanängen, emboldened and powerful simply by the new music he is making.

"I'm moving into a more bold state, I'm confident, powerful, I became a singer, I learned from my darkness and discovered my magnetism."

The album includes the songs Sum, Hulls, Humbug and Lilies, and is available on CD, LP and all streaming / download services.
