The ten song album, produced by Wells, is lush, melodic, and unafraid. It’s both neoclassical chamber music, and art pop, propelled by synths, strings, and beats, and held together through Wells’ un-wincing lyrics and vocals.

The songs began as a commission of new works from the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s renowned Liquid Music Series (recent commissions include Philip Glass, Blood Orange, Bon Iver), with arrangements by violin virtuoso and composer Michi Wiancko for string quintet and french horn and premiered last year in Minneapolis. Wells developed the album through a commission from New York’s Metropolis Ensemble (grammy nominated chamber orchestra) who join Emily on the album along with drummer Shayna Dunkleman (Xiu Xiu, Peptalk).
