Songwriter and composer Ade Vincent’s obsession with Edgar Allan Poe’s classic poem The Raven has been spilling over into much of what he writes for several years. Other Friends Have Flown Before, the popular album-closer from The Tiger & Me’s The Drifter’s Dawn, takes its title and several lines from the poem, while other references can be found throughout many songs and pieces. With this new album, he takes his fascination with the work to the ultimate conclusion, using the poem in its entirety as lyrics for an album of ‘art-folk’ songs.

Voice, piano, guitar, ukulele, violin, cello, oboe and percussion combine across pop, folk, contemporary classical and minimalism; echoes of Chopin through to Andrew Bird are present.

French visual artist Luca Valente provides a stunning animation for the single My Chamber Door. Drawing on cubism, futurism and Songye tribal art, the stark black and white imagery captures the spirit of the original but provides a new and exciting interpretation.

The Raven is an ambitious and modern take on a classic work.
