An exclusive stream of Emily Haines’ new solo album Choir of the Mind is now available on NPR, and this album is seriously worth the listen. Released under the name Emily Haines and the Soft Skeleton, Choir of the Mind is Haines’ follow-up solo album to 2007’s What Is Free to a Good Home?.
From the opening track “Planets” to song thirteen “RIP,” the album rests at a humble 59 minutes and places Haines’ delicate vocal delivery at its height, among the soft touch of keys and the occasional heavy beat, which serves as a pleasant surprise throughout the album. Listen to Choir of the Mind on NPR here. The album officially releases on September 15.
