British-born, Paris-based artist ALA.NI has announced that her debut album You & I will see release in the U.S. through Missing Piece Records, distributed via Caroline in Spring 2017.
ALA.NI recently made her first trip to the US where she performed for Paste Magazine and WNYC's Soundcheck. John Schafer of Soundcheck said, "ALA.NI’s forthcoming debut album, called You And I, is nothing but surprises. Often sounding like a long lost artifact of the mid-20th century, her striking voice goes from torchy jazz to intimate pop to atmospheric vocalize." Additionally, her debut single "Cherry Blossom" premiered via The Fader.
ALA.NI stopped many people dead in their tracks when she appeared on Later...with Jools Holland, performing "Cherry Blossom" with a Disney-gone-noir vocal, as compulsively anachronistic as the sensibility of the track itself.
