Hannah Rose Platt Announces New Album “Deathbed Confessions”, Shares New Song “Dead Man on the G Train”
London-based singer-songwriter Hannah Rose Platt announced her third studio album “Deathbed Confessions” would be released on May 19, 2023.
It is her first album in four years since the 2019 album “Letters Under Floorboards”.
The album contains 13-track, featuring guest appearance form The Budapest Film Orchestra.
She worked with a producer Ed Harcourt on the album.
From the album, she unveiled the first single called “Dead Man on the G Train” on February 24, 2023.
The track was written by Hannah Rose Platt and produced by Ed Harcourt. The accompanying animated music video was animated by Marc Corrigan.
Hannah Rose Platt said of the song, “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 new album consists of twelve poetic ghost stories and is inspired by the dark, the depraved, and the eternally damned.
Hannah Rose Platt said of the album, “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'!”
Producer Ed Harcourt added, “Hannah is a consummate storyteller and as soon as I heard her songs I was happily bewitched… I think we're both very similar in the fact that we are obsessive film aficionados & therefore think in a more visual way in our approach to the music and the sounds. What I love about working with Hannah is that she is very free and totally open to my delusional bouts of grandeur and hopefully you, the listener, will hear the love and the pathos and the dark humour that we have managed to commit to tape in equal measure. Congratulations Hannah and I can't wait for the world to hear this dazzling humdinger.”
