Among the scores of artists expected to release new music next year is singer/songwriter Priscilla Ahn, who with her third LP, This is Where We Are (due February 25 on SQE Music), looks to bring new dimensions to her already winsome music.
Early impressions of the album suggest Ahn embracing a lo-fi electronica sound, signaling somewhat of a shift from the primarily acoustic-folk distinctions of her prior two albums, 2008’s A Good Day and 2011’s When You Grow Up. With the album’s lead single, “Leave It Open,” which was released on October 29 to digital outlets, Ahn’s evolution is not only evident but striking.
“For me, this album was about finally finding my voice again as a songwriter and a singer,” says Ahn in a recent press release. “This Is Where We Are portrays who I am now and another side of myself that I’d never really been able to show in other albums.”
Ahn is slated to tour North America in March and April of next year, including a stop at the perennial SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas.
