It’s hard to believe a song as pastoral as “Aslan” came from time spent living in New York, but Toronto’s Charlotte Cornfield can draw inspiration from even the stoniest of environments.
Cornfield says “Aslan” “…was the first real New York track… I wrote it when I first moved to Brooklyn. It’s about accepting that sometimes things are beyond your control and it’s okay. You don’t have to go crazy chasing answers. You can just be yourself and do what you do and then they’ll come to you.”
She’s collected all the other answers that came to her during this creative period into a new album called Future Snowbird (the follow up to her 2011 album Two Horses) arriving on March 11 on Consonant Records. Cornfield and her band, Sam Gleason, Damon Hankoff, Kathryn Palumbo and Sam Rosenberg, recorded the album live off the floor at Rooster Studios in Toronto with producer and engineer Don Kerr, and welcomed guest musicians Tim Darcy (Ought) and Johnny Spence (Tegan and Sara) to help out.
