"Family Tree" is the fifth full length studio album by Danish singer and songwriter Oh Land. It was released by Tusk or Tooth Records on 3 May 2019.
Oh Land shares her most intimate music yet in the form of her album Family Tree.
The new album comes in stark contrast to her last solo project, Earth Sick, released five years ago. Diverging from that album’s heavy synths and experimental sounds, Family Tree dials back for a more acoustic singer-songwriter feel, featuring soft piano and Oh Land's hypnotizing vocals.
Unlike Oh Land’s previous work, almost all of the songs on Family Tree were written at the piano. The album -- which also features orchestral parts played by the Budapest Art Orchestra -- shares Fabricius’ struggles as she grapples with the turmoil in her personal life and finds comfort in her music.
“The changes taking place in my life were so foreign to me, it made me feel like I was the first person in the world to experience them,” Fabricius says. “That can be a very lonely feeling. So I decided to put these songs out in the world, so that others who might be having similar experiences won't feel so lonely or lost.”
