“Let This Remain” is the new single of Irish based singer/songwriter and cello player Alana Henderson. She’s been on a break from her own music whilst touring with Hozier as a cello player in his band – but what a come back. Strings subtly dance in the background, and her vocals play around on top. We love this alternative take on folk music.

 

Speaking about the track she has said:
“After a period of post-tour decompression it was recorded at a friend’s isolated Irish cottage with the help of Belfast-based musician/producer Alan Haslam and using only the most rudimentary equipment; my cello, a Roland Juno-106 synthesiser and a TR-808 drum machine, along with some improvised acoustic percussion (we snapped a pair of shoe trees together for the snare sound).”
