⭐ ISLANDER: A NEW MUSICAL CAST ALBUM RELEASED ⭐
The stunning original cast album of Islander: A New Musical is out now, it has been announced.
The critically acclaimed show, performed by Kirsty Findlay (Olivier Award Nominated, Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour) and Bethany Tennick (Stage Debut Award Nominated, Islander at Southwark Playhouse), follows the story of Eilidh who stares out to sea and dreams of a new life beyond her lonely island. Myth and reality collide when the tide washes a mysterious stranger onto her beach, changing her life forever.
Epic storytelling intimately staged with a contemporary Scottish folk-inspired score – by award-winning composer, writer and singer-songwriter Finn Anderson – Kirsty and Bethany perform a whole host of characters, while weaving, building and layering their voices using looping technology to create an expansive, ethereal soundscape.
Exploring themes of loss, identity, migration and home, Islander was created on the Isle of Mull and is inspired by the sights, sounds and smells of the wind-beaten and wave-struck Western Isle.
The production had its first – and completely sold out – run in 2019 at Summerhall as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe programme before a three week season at London’s Southwark Playhouse last October.
With national touring plans currently on hold, the album aims to give Islander fans a welcome opportunity to listen to the complete soundtrack anywhere and at any time.
Islander: A New Musical cast album is available now through Spotify, iTunes, Amazon & all major online music distributors.
