Jehnny Beth - To Love Is To Live (White Vinyl)
The debut solo album from Jehnny Beth from the band Savages and French lo-fi duo John and Jehn.
+ Limited Indie shop version is pressed on white vinyl.
'To Love Is To Live' was recorded in Los Angeles, London and Paris, and is packed with collaborators as diverse as producer Flood, actor Cillian Murphy, The xx’s Romy Madley Croft and Idles frontman Joe Talbot.
Jehnny says, “When I started making this record all I could think about was the impermanence of life, that I had to do this before it’s too late, and here I am telling you that my album is called 'TO LOVE IS TO LIVE'. Today those words resonate more than ever. There isn’t really anything else in life, is it?”
Best-known as the compelling vocalist for Savages, Jehnny Beth is the performing name of French musician Camille Berthomier. She began making music after moving to London in 2006, when she formed the duo John & Jehn with her partner Johnny Hostile (aka Nicolas Congé). After releasing a pair of albums, in 2011 Beth and Hostile founded the Pop Noire label as a platform for their projects. These included Savages, which Beth formed with guitarist Gemma Thompson late in 2011. The band's critically acclaimed albums -- which included 2013's 'Silence Yourself' and 2016's 'Adore Life' -- made the most of Beth's commanding presence.
