Former Concretes leader Victoria Bergsman is back with her first new music as Taken By Trees in four years. It's an EP / mini-album of Colin Blunstone (The Zombies) covers titled Another Year ,and will be out December 9 via Rough Trade. The title and cover art are a tip of the hat to The Zombies frontman's solo debut, One Year, and the EP features three songs from that album ("Say You Don't Mind," "She Loves The Way They Love Her," "Caroline Goodbye"), along with "Time's Running Out," and "I Don't Believe in Miracles" from Blunstone's second solo album, Ennismore.
Bergsman made the mini-album after moving back to Stockholm, Sweden following years living in Los Angeles, and reunited with her "Young Folks" collaborators Peter Bjorn and John, who serve as her band. The record also features Freja Drakenberg, aka Freja the Dragon, and pop vibraphonist Esther.
