Released: 16th Oct 2015


after the heartbreak of her divorce and the joy of her newborn child, diane’s lyricisms are bolder and more defined than ever and are beautifully backed by Joanna newsom collaborator francesconi’s intricate guitars.

‘cold moon’ takes diane’s songwriting to the next level – left raw, and completely uncovered by the gentle and subtle virtuoso playing from francesconi, it allows her to come into her own and create an album that’s possibly her most stark and stunning to date. “francesconi knows exactly how to frame an extraordinary female voice” – album of the week, sunday times; “a subdued but atmospheric work characterised by lyrical poeticism and sparse arrangements” – 7/10 uncut
