Martina Topley-Bird returns with Solitude, a candid statement in Martina's trademark detached, strong yet fragile, sensual style. “You said you needed me, you said I promised, you being honest, depended on your mood, you took solitude for food.” Recorded in Baltimore where Martina has been based over the last 4 years, created in conjunction with a new US-based team, the single is an introduction to her upcoming 4 track EP titled MTB Continued.
Born out of themes of internal and external discord, Solitude explores the journey through a troubled world and a reflection on human conflicts, the comfort and torment of solitude and the fragility of life’s balance.
The release comes 8 years after Topley-Bird’s last album Some Place Simple, and a string of acclaimed collaborations.
