- The self-produced work, out next month, features 31 musicians.
SPELLLING, real name Chrystia Cabral, is back on Sacred Bones Records.
The Bay Area artist will share her third full-length via the Brooklyn-based label on June 25th. The Turning Wheel draws on synth pop, R&B and soul and sees Cabral co-producing and orchestrating an ensemble of 31 musicians, including banjo, harp, bassoon and trombone. Originally meant to be released last September, the twelve-track LP was delayed due to the pandemic and resulted in instrumentalists recording in socially-distanced and remote studio sessions.
The Turning Wheel follows Mazy Fly from 2019 and 2018's Hard To Please, both of which also came out on Sacred Bones. Read our review of Mazy Fly single "Haunted Water."
