Emily Wells UK Debut Album 'Mama' Released June 3rd 2013

After announcing that new single 'Passenger' will be released on April 29th through Partisan Records, Emily Wells has revealed an atmospheric remix of the original by Kid Koala.

Kid Koala re-envisages 'Passenger' and transforms it into something just as magical. The song starts with mellow tones leaving Wells' beautiful vocals on full display. Spacey synths kick in, followed by an almost marching band style of percussion presenting Wells' innate talent in a whole new light. It's a re-working of a delicate original that explores the versatility of an artist with such a credited musical background.

'Passenger' is taken from Emily Wells' upcoming UK debut album 'Mama', which is set for release on June 3rd through Partisan Records. It is a record that combines subtle hip-hop inflections and wide-ranging sounds with Wells' distinctive feline vocals. This forthcoming release also includes a second CD on which Wells has re-imagined the entire work acoustically, leaving only her crystalline voice and superior strings on display.
 
The UK release of 'Mama' follows Emily Wells' contribution to the soundtrack for Park Chan-Wook's recent psychological thriller Stoker, featuring alongside Clint Mansell and Philip Glass.
 
From the start of her career, Wells' musical interests were simply too wide ranging for just one instrument. Trained as a classical violinist, the Texan soon created her own sonic "spaceship," an ever-growing pulsating arsenal of synthesizers, effects pedals and toy instruments, all tied together with live sampling and a genre-agnostic approach that is diverse, distinctive, and utterly her own. Honing her sound on a series of independent releases, including an acclaimed cover of The Notorious B.I.G.'s classic 'Juicy', it was these initial glimpses and the countless live dates both as bandleader and solo performer that carved out the musician she has become today.

The female singer-songwriter stable may be packed with unique voices and varying degrees of talent, but Emily Wells is an artist whose innate complexities lift her out of that particular stable and into a realm all of her own.
