After a seven-year hiatus, Record, is Tracey Thorn’s latest offering of entirely original material. The album follows on from her 2010 album, Love and Its Opposite, which, according to Thorn was her: “mid-life album - full of divorce and hormones.” For Thorn, Record represents: “...that sense of liberation that comes in the aftermath, from embarking on a whole new 'no fucks given' phase of life."

The opening track, ‘Queen’, embodies this unshackled defiance, as Thorn sings her heart out in the electro-synth-pop song, and describes it as “…a great opener for the album - driven along by Ewan Pearson’s unashamedly glittering electro-pop production.”

Stand out track ‘Sister’, strikes out like a warning as Thorn sings: “Don’t mess with me/ Don’t hurt my babies/ I’ll come for you/ You’ll find you’ve bitten off more than you can chew.” The 8’32” song also features backing vocals from R&B singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae, and an exciting experimental disco-jam outro.

As much as ever, Thorn’s work is concerned with the different stages of womanhood. Consequently, Thorn employed a talented troupe of female musicians for her rhythm section: Warpaint’s Stella and Jenny. Record is available as a red 12" vinyl.
