Originally released in 2006, ‘The Black Swan’ was Jansch’s last studio album bookending his tremendous contribution to music.
- 15thAnniversary reissue on silver vinyl.
- Available to purchase June 12th 2021 on Record Store Day at participating stores.
An important release that sees Jansch’s revered style boosted by musical admirers Beth Orton, Devendra Banhart, Otto Hauser, Helena Espvall and Noah Georgeson.
Featuring sentimental ode ‘High Days’, beautiful title track, instrumental ‘Hey Pretty Girl’ and the country spirited ‘Texas Cowboy Blues’. Beth Orton accompanies with her mesmeric vocals on ‘When The Sun Comes Up’, traditional folk song of withered glory ‘Katie Cruel’ that has been brilliantly rearranged and features Devendra Banhart.
Jansch’s extraordinary perceptive lyricism and exceptional songwriting makes ‘The Black Swan’ a vital record in his canon.
