Emma Pollock was a founder member of The Delgados, one of the most interesting and influential bands to emerge from the mid-90s Glasgow music scene. Not only did they make a string of questing, ambitious albums, often working with Flaming Lips / Mercury Rev producer Dave Fridmann, but The Delgados also founded the pioneering - and still highly active - Chemikal Underground record label, launching the careers of Mogwai, Arab Strap, Bis and many more.
As one of the most bewitching singers and natural songwriters around, Emma has always had fans at her record label, 4AD - and the idea of a solo album was first floated more than five years ago. And when The Delgados called it a day as a band in the Spring of 2005, it seemed that the moment had come to take the label up on that long-standing offer.
Emma has spent the second half of 2005 writing and recording demos. Her album will be recorded in the Spring of 2006 for release later that year.
