Celebrated Scottish folk singer-songwriter Karine Polwart has announced plans to release her new album A Pocket Of Wind Resistance on the 17th November.

The album is the musical accompaniment to Polwart’s self-written, directed and performed theatre production Wind Resistance from last year’s Edinburgh Festival and is inspired by her close-hand view of thousands of geese migrating to Fala Flow, a small peat bog by her home.

“It’s a meditation on the ways in which we, as humans, protect and care for one another, and for all life, by stepping up, falling back, labouring and resting in our own fashion,” Karine Polwart explained. “In particular, it’s a hymn to mothers and birthing, to the proffering of sanctuary, to the miracle of medicine, and a reminder, a warning, about the consequences of isolating and forgetting.”

The first single from A Pocket Of Wind Resistance is the spoken word “Labouring And Resting” – take a listen below:
