Hannah Rose Platt Releases Two Enticing New Music Videos Ahead of Album Release

Back in January we reported that UK Americana artist Hannah Rose Platt had signed a deal with Xtra Miles recording and they have already hit the ground running. Next month will see the release of Hannah’s third album ‘Deathbed Confessions’, a release produced by Ed Harcourt and out on Friday 19th May. In the lead-up to the release, Hannah has released two fantastic new singles, each featuring outstanding, captivating videos.

The first release, ‘Dead Man on the G Train’ was released at the end of February, an enticing tale about a murder in New York in the 1930’s.

Hannah Rose Platt – ‘Dead Man on the G Train’ was the first song I wrote for the record and the opening title. I wanted to write a little four-minute ‘pulp noir’ mystery thriller, which sets the tone for the rest of the record. Ed and I had so much fun recording this track, expect to hear bombastic drums and beastly guitar train sounds. We hope to transport you to 1930s New York, someone’s boarding the G train to Brooklyn and they won’t be getting off… (listen out for the twist!)’

The second release, just last week is ‘Feeding Time for Monsters’, which saw Hannah team up with acclaimed animator William Davies to create a ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ style video, which you can’t take your eyes off.

Hannah explains: ‘If a house represents the psyche – what would haunt the rooms of our very own haunted houses? I explore a mix of my own ptsd experiences and personal ghosts in this song. Ed and I wanted to create a sense of chaos and dissociation with woozy vocals and thrashing guitars (and the animation by William Davies is just astonishing! Check it out!).”

The two releases are a fantastic and completely intriguing glimpse of ‘Deathbed Confessions’, an album that promises 12 poetic ghost stories.

Hannah Rose Platt – “I’ve always been fascinated by the variety of emotions ghost stories and horror can evoke. I wanted to create a sonic anthology series of haunting vignettes, and wrote a collection of songs exploring polarised themes of death, love, the afterlife, murder, regret, the uncanny, the kindness of strangers, and the downright bizarre! The characters in the songs are linked as they travel by train to the afterlife, each revisiting key moments, decisions and regrets that subsequently shaped their lives. I hope the listener feels a desire to curl up and be transported back to ‘story-time’!”
