Burnside Album Details
Diane, Alela, About Farewell CD
Alela Diane’s 4th album, About Farewell, serves as an eloquent goodbye to lovers from years past, coupled with some poignant last walks down memory lane. While the lyrics deal most directly with Alela's recent divorce, the album explores her entire last decade of relationships with tremendous honesty and nuanced insight. The entirety of About Farewell was built around Alela's voice and simple guitar arrangements. These stripped-down folk songs are a perfect vehicle for Alela's impressive emotional range. She's able to convey heartrending vulnerability at one moment, then bold wisdom and unflinching directness at the next. A once-heartsick Alela has said her farewells, and now is the time to meet the new, more fully actualized woman. The LP component is on 180 gram vinyl and has a digital download card.
