‘1973’ is the second track off the new Beth Orton album KIDSTICKS, out May 27th on Anti.
‘1973’ frames Beth’s unique voice against a heavy, low-slung, mechanized synth riff.
Produced by Beth and Andrew Hung (Fuck Buttons) and mixed by David Wrench (Jamie xx, Hot Chip, Caribou, Bloc Party), KIDSTICKS repositions Beth’s unmistakable voice inside ten pure, audacious, playful and kinetic songs.
A resolutely focused album, it represents a rare chance to hear an established artist get plugged in and completely rework the song-writing process with wide-eyed, open-minded glee.
