Ana Silvera celebrates new single, 'Hometown'

Written by Imran Mirza

One of our most beloved acts here at Liberation Frequency, this month celebrates the release of her first single, ‘Hometown’.

Having been recorded between London and New York, and produced by the likes of Ray Singer (Peter Sarstedt, Japan, David Sylvian) and Brad Albetta (Rufus Wainwright, Willie Nelson), patience for the full-length album is something we hope we won't need too much more of, but ‘Hometown’ is certainly enough to tide us over. 

Lucky fans in attendance at the Purcell Rooms, Thursday 11th March were treated to live renditions of many of the forthcoming album’s tracks, including favourites, ‘All The King’s Horses’ and ‘Salome’, as well as 'Hometown’.  Accompanied by Marco Susino and the Santiago Quartet, the songs were presented with the precision, warmth and charm we’ve come to expect, but it’s the excellence Silvera displays in each of these qualities that still manages to make us feel like it’s the first time you’re experiencing one of her incredible live performances. 

There’s a consistent enchantment to Silvera that oozes out of her music and it’s a quality captured throughout ‘Hometown’ - the rich strings and piano all paint the lavish backdrop for Silvera's rich voice to soar over, making it a distinguished choice for a first single.

As if that wasn’t enough, lucky Liberation Frequency readers are in for a further treat as we’re also able to present an exclusive free download of Ana Silvera’s cover of Toto’s ‘Rosanna’ for you to enjoy, so click the link on the home page for your free download!

I saw Ana for the first time at the Purcell Rooms show - She was amazing! I bought the Hometown single on iTunes as soon as I got home!
