Anna Meredith announces new album Anno, shares new song ‘Low Light’

The follow-up to 2016 Scottish Album of the Year winner Varmints.

Anna Meredith has announced a new album called Anno. Out August 17 on Moshi Moshi, the LP sees original compositions by Meredith woven into pieces from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

Meredith, a former composer for the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, recorded the album with the Scottish Ensemble violin orchestra. According to the press release, the album features “experimental, utterly fresh partner pieces to sit alongside Vivaldi’s original compositions.”

Anno began life as a live project. It was first performed at Spitalfields Music Summer Festival in June 2016 as an immersive show that saw the musicians move around the stage, with a visual accompaniment from artist Eleanor Meredith.
