Holly Miranda To Release Album On 22 Feb

Holly Miranda is no ordinary songbird.

Coming from strictly religious roots, Holly left her home town of Detroit when she was 16 and headed to New York where she formed her band, The Jealous Girlfriends. She met Dave Sitek five years ago. Dave was in the process of building his studio, next door to her rehearsal space and she would play him her demos and they talked about recording an album In the interim Dave got tied up with TV On The Radio and producing records by the likes of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Even without a record or a label word seeped out about Holly. There was a La Blogotheque session and Vanity Fair shout-outs, support slots with The xx, Friendly Fires and The Antlers, and rave write-ups in Dazed & Confused and the New York Times.

Eventually Dave and Holly made the album they had always planned, sifting through 40 demos Holly had recorded at her apartment, or on the road in the back of the van. The album was recorded during a month's sessions at Sitek's studio in Brooklyn, sleeping all day, recorded all night. The album also features guest appearances from TV On The Radio members Kyp Malone and Jaleel Bunton

The Magician's Private Library is out February 22nd through XL/Rhythmethod
