Vinyl LP pressing. Marry Waterson and David A. Jaycock release their second album as a duo, the wonderful Death Had Quicker Wings Than Love. Featuring a plethora of notable instrumental collaborations with the likes of celebrated singer-songwriter Kathryn Williams, Romeo Stodart (The Magic Numbers), Emma Smith (The Elysian Quartet), John Parish (PJ Harvey) and produced by Portishead's Adrian Utley, the uniquely atmospheric, dark and haunting folk record focuses Waterson and Jaycock's singular voice and sets them apart. Death Had Quicker Wings Than Love follows in the previous record's authentic English folk style, similarly inspired inspired by personal experience, but told through the form of historical fables. Waterson describes how she reworked fables to convey a common theme throughout the album, of feeling 'lost'.
