September 2nd 2016, Dutch based artist iET will release her new full length album ‘Clarity’. The album contains 12 mesmerizing songs. The album will be released on vinyl, CD and digitally through Spotify, iTunes and most other streaming media.
Clarity is iET’s first release after the full length psychedelic soul album So Unreal, which was a joint venture with New York based Grammy award winning engineer turned producer Russell Elevado (D’Angelo, Erykah Badu).
On Clarity iET fashions her enchanting songs with a collection of vintage instruments, most of which have been in her or her families possession for most of her life. Her very first guitar, trumpet, a double bass inherited from her uncle and a recently acquired Schimmel: an upright piano dating back to 1930 are all employed to bring this unique album to life. Though iET never played the piano before she had an instant resonance with the instrument, resulting in many piano songs which are featured on Clarity. iET recorded all the songs in her own studio with a collection of vintage microphones, preamps and effects gathered by Budy, adding a wealth of warmth to her sound.
‘Clarity is about the search for your true self. As we grow up we learn to build walls around ourselves, wear masks, hide what we feel and therefor who we truly are, what we long for and what we dream of. Clarity is about breaking away these safe walls, accepting and embracing your roots and legacy, letting go of the past and the awareness that you are only truly unique in your most purest form. It is the moment of Clarity that you feel what really matters to you. Family, tradition and love. Taking that step into the open, revealing yourself and learning to share your true feelings.’
