Woman’s Hour have announced that they have broken up. But they are releasing one final album, Ephyra, and have shared a video for its first single, new song “Don’t Speak.” Ephyra is due out February 15, 2019. Check out the “Don’t Speak” video below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

The British band broke-up before completely finishing Ephyra, but have still opted to release it. It arrives five years after their 2014 debut album, Conversations, an album we were fond of. We interviewed the band for it and they played one of our SXSW parties at the time.

The band issued this statement about the album on its Bandcamp listing: “Most of these songs were recorded as demos on a farm in the outskirts of Kendal in early 2015. We brought our Roland Juno 60 and Korg MS10 synthesisers, a Fender Jazzmaster, a 1978 Fender Musicmaster Bass, a couple of amps, a bag of effects, a Sennheiser mic and a gas heater loaned to us by our relatives Peter and Hazel. Over the next two years we all moved around quite a lot but most of the final recordings were made at Will’s house in Leytonstone. They were mostly mixed by Josh and mastered by Rupert Clervaux. They contain the thoughts, memories, ambitions, fears and sleepless nights that have come to define the narrative of our lives over the last three years. These songs are letters to you, and once you’ve sent a letter you can never ask for it back.”

Ephyra Tracklist:

01 “Don’t Speak”
02 “From Eden To Exile Then Into Dust”
03 “I Can’t Take You Seriously”
04 “Luke”
05 “Mirrorball”
06 “Heathen”
07 “It’s A Blast”
08 “Removal Of Hope”
