Keeley Forsyth¬†has today shared the video for new single ‘The Hollow’, the title track from her new album which will be released via¬†FatCat‘s¬†130701¬†imprint this Friday 10 May. The track follows previous singles ‘Horse‘ and ‘Turning (feat. Colin Stetson)‘ .

Speaking of ‘The Hollow’, Keeley says:
“The title-track was made in reaction to reading an article about a woman suffering from postpartum psychosis, and a really tragic end. I felt so connected and moved by this. I wanted to force myself into the same space that she might have felt, or I imagined that she felt, so I could at least feel that she wasn’t alone. So in the song there is reference to “there is no help here, not for me” and also the highs and the lows of the strings referencing the resonance in one’s mind as you’re losing control to this horrendous mental illness disease.”

Although having made music privately for most of her life it was only eventually in 2020 that Forsyth felt ready to find an audience with the release of her debut collection¬†Debris. Since then, Forsyth has toured extensively and recent shows at¬†Rewire Festival¬†and¬†Bristol New Music¬†find her show developing more still with¬†The Line of Best Fit¬†remarking at Rewire that, “Forsyth has shown herself to be one of the UK‚Äôs most consistently interesting and creatively absorbing performers”. On 23 May Forsyth will bring her brand new AV show to¬†London‘s¬†ICA, the show features¬†Ross Downes,¬†Matthew Bourne¬†and visuals from acclaimed opera/theatre director and video artist¬†Netia Jones. Tickets are available below.

Elsewhere, Keeley has been awarded the PRS new music commission for her performance piece Bog Body and has scored Maxine Peake’s directorial debut short film, Incompatible. She has become a sought-after collaborator, currently working towards projects with the Iceland-based electronic music producer Ben Frost, and the Italian composer Teho Teardo and is currently finishing a suite of songs for voice and piano with Matthew Bourne. Of late she has taken on guest vocal duties for Louis Carnell among others, as well as remixes for Gazelle Twin and French electronic musician Quin Quis. Forsyth has also returned to acting in the past year with parts in Jessica Hausner’s Club Zero and Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things.
