8th FEBRUARY 2013:ALBUM RELEASED TODAY AUSTRALIA AND ITUNES US/CANADA
The Cloud Appreciation Society is the poignant new album of acclaimed Sydney- born songbird Melanie Horsnell. Five years on from her celebrated album Complicated Sweetheart, this new offering shares heartbreaking songs of small town love and loss written in Candelo, her new home beneath black mountains. The Cloud Appreciation Society glows with an acoustic stripped-back sound and is intermingled with Melanie’s quintessential starry-eyed voice, lyrics to die for and a delicate but timeless presence, which has made her so adored on the scene.
