Stream My Brightest Diamond’s Upcoming Album, “This Is My Hand”

    Asthmatic Kitty is set to release the fouth studio LP of idiosyncratic singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Shara Worden, a.k.a. My Brightest Diamond, on September 16. Thanks to the generous folks at NPR, the pre-release stream of This Is My Hand is now available here.

    Worden has been critically acclaimed for her unique blend of chamber pop, Americana, and cabaret music, as well as a poetic angle to her symbolism-heavy lyrics. Besides releasing three studio records and a remix album, Worden has also collaborated with the likes of Sufjan Stevens (on The Age of Adz) and the Decemberists (on “The Queen” from their 2009 album The Hazards of Love), and recently appeared in the six-hour experimental film River of Fundament.

    Check out the album’s first two singles, “Pressure” and “Lover/Killer” (below).
