FALL is the latest release by Bangalow singer songwriter M. E. Baird.

A deeply personal album, released in 2016 and recorded in a period of great personal loss for the artist, the release will be part of Baird's upcoming Tintembar show.

He will also include some songs from prevous releases with band Lionel Lee's Curse, and he will even try some new songs for an upcoming album, still unnamed, to be launched as M. E. Baird and The Agency.

The artist will be accompanied on stage by Sali Bracewell on piano and Julian Smith on bass guitar.

Bracewell will also perform her own songs as suport act.

Mr Baird said he wil start recording his new album next week, making it a great time to try some new songs in Tintenbar.

"The set is mainly songs from Fall, plus about four tracks from Lionel Lee's Curse and that album, and then a couple of new ones from the new album, plus a few of our favorite covers," he said.

The artist said the new album will mark a big change compared to Fall.

"Fall was quite personal, and because it was recorded during a numebr of deaths and illnesses that were going on in my family, that really affected the recordid, so it' a very somber release," he said.

"This time around it will be a much more band-oriented album, much rockier but the tracks will still be personal," he said.

"(In the new album) I'm going to put together 12 songs investigating every day things that I would like to talk about in a style that I would like to hear.

"I am not doing it with any audience in mind, my goal is that I will really like the songs," he said.
