Album - new. Release date: 20/11/2020. Pink vinyl


For fans of Frankie Cosmos, Daniel Johnston, Randy Newman. The third album from Omaha, NE-based songwriter, Anna McClellan. Moving, geographically, from the heart of New York City to a bucolic retreat upstate, and finally back to her midwestern hometown of Omaha, NE, Anna also traversed emotional states -from the restless frenzy of urban life, to the enforced, depressive rumination of the country.

The album was recorded over two weeks with a multitude of local cohorts, and it documents Anna’s journey from the Midwest to the east coast and back again, probing both the roots of her creative impetus and her ongoing commitment to social issues. The process of composing and recording I saw first light has both reformed and renewed her dedication to exploration, be it inward or external, and to her own boundless creative energy.
