This will be the last album from The Stray Birds as since recording it they have split up. They will not be touring to support the album and planned UK dates in early 2019 have been cancelled. As fans and friends of the band it is with sadness and disappointment to bring this news but we are sure Maya, Oliver and Charlie will continue to produce great music in whatever guises they choose and we wish them the best.

In the meantime lets celebrate in their final offering, the album Let It Pass.

If The Stray Birds were going to make another album, there was only one way it would happen: together. The idea was at once a challenge, an ultimatum, and a survival mechanism for a band at the crossroads. Write the record collaboratively, or dont write it at all. The result is Let It Pass, their fourth album and most powerful, personal, and cathartic collection yet. The record charts the trios tumultuous emotional journey in the years since the release of their acclaimed 2016 album Magic Fire, a period which saw de Vitry and fiddler / guitarist / mandolinist / vocalist Oliver Craven end their romantic relationship while choosing to continue their musical one. Along with bassist / banjoist / vocalist Charlie Muench, the pair had to face down an uncertain future and reevaluate what it meant to create art together. This is what they have done and it sits as their epitaph.

Highly recommended
