Kerri Watt has announced the release of her debut studio album Neptune’s Daughter for January 2021.
The album will be released on 15 January 2021, available on CD, cassette (available from her official store), and as a Deluxe Digital Edition including six bonus acoustic tracks.
Kerri Watt recorded Neptune’s Daughter in 2018 with Texas based producer Machine (Clutch, Lamb of God, Fallout Boy), with its release delayed by the ongoing Covid-19 situation. For Kerri Watt the opportunity to work with somebody at the other end of the musical scale was one she leapt at. “I loved the idea of joining forces with someone from a totally different genre to bring something unique to the sound” she explains. “Machine and I spoke at length about the sound of the album, influences, bands/playlists/moods we liked and found we had a lot in common.”
The resultant album is set to feature Kerri Watt’s Americana sound blended with an array of other genres, but keeping the essence of the original tracks intact.
“It feels like years of work and passion are coming to fruition and I’m finally getting to share a full body of work” she adds, “There’s some really fun, light tracks mixed with darker moments, and scattered throughout are a few subtle references to some of my musical heroes that I’m hoping fans will have fun picking out! After years of experimenting with different sounds and ideas, I’ve written a piece that I hope will have something for every kind of person and be the positive start we all need for 2021.”
Preceding the album is the Chapter Two EP. Released on 11 December, the EP includes three tracks; one original, one cover, and the new single, an acoustic version of one of Kerri’s most beloved songs, Chasing Aeroplanes.
