Album- New.  Release Date: 20/11/20  Black Vinyl 

 

Also produced by Campbell, Milkwhite Sheets was released on 23rd October 2006 following her Mercury nomination for Ballad Of The Broken Seas, her first collaboration with Mark Lanegan. Milkwhite Sheets interweaves traditional songs from Appalachia and The British Isles alongside songs written by Campbell. Of the album Campbell says: “When David Tibet introduced me to the recordings of Shirley and Dolly Collins I was instantly transfixed. I’d never heard anything so beautiful in my life, so raw and honest, it led me onwards to discover Davey Graham and Anne Briggs and the recordings of Jean Ritchie and more. I couldn’t hear enough. I feel them so deeply and the humanity and breadth of experience they encompass. My whole life everything has always been about the songs. And as a writer listening, absorbing and learning about these magical, mysterious treasures taught and inspired so much, I honestly think some of these ancient folk songs are some of the most beautiful to ever grace the earth. They spoke to me in a way I’d never experienced prior and never will again. I was grateful David Tibet assisted me in deciding the album title over dinner in Glasgow one night. And stoked to have Alex Neilson drumming.”
