Today sees the release of The Wren, The Wren EP via Rough Trade Records’ folk imprint River Lea. You can listen/buy it here. The EP will also be released on 7” & CD on December 13th in record shops, but you can pre-order it here in the UK & here for the rest of the EU.
The Wren, The Wren goes so far back that we don’t know where or how it originated. It is a bird steeped in myth, folklore and tradition and through the ages has been revered as a symbol of fertility in many cultures, or as in this song, sacrificed even though it is the ‘King of the Birds’.
