A new self released album 'Little Girl' comes out on 2nd September 2016. Recorded with producer Eddie Al-Shakarchi, the new album has a distinct Americana feel to it.
As a taster for the new album, the title track 'Little Girl' and 'Your Joy' are being released as an AA single by Folkstock Records on Friday, 19th August 2016. Talking about these tracks recently, SERA said:
"In truth, this song is about my relationship with my father. And about how I experienced divorce as a very young child. Wanting to say so much, but when your father isn’t a natural communicator or comfortable in expressing feelings; things remain unsaid for years, decades. And you as a child are trying to navigate between loyalty, love, truth-seeking and growing yourself, into an adult. This is one of my favourite songs because I love how it starts off so delicate, gradually building into the second chorus which is a fitting climactic outpouring of unexpressed emotion."
"This song is about being happy and at peace in that moment; being outside in nature, the sun on your face, away from chaos and technology, expectations and obligations, walking with your loved one, drinking wine by the campfire, listening to Bob Dylan. Calmness, peace, and inner happiness. There is a Welsh version of this song on my EP ‘Straeon’ called 'Agor dy Galon', which is translated literally as Open Your Heart. The poetic nature of the song suited a translation."
