Amber Arcades announces new album 'European Heartbreak'

Annelotte De Graaf, aka Amber Arcades has announced her new album, European Heartbreak, will be released September 28th on Heavenly Recordings.

Today she also shares the video for Simple Song which you can view below. The video is the second part of a trilogy, part one, Goodnight Europe can also be viewed below.

She had this to say about Simple Song: "This music video forms part 2 of a trilogy which tells a modern European (love) story, touching on various thoughts and feelings that inspired my new record. Using the medium of film to tell this story ties it to one of the central ideas of the record, which is the essential nature of storytelling in understanding our lives. For me, part 1 focused very much on a feeling of isolation, being trapped in an external surrounding which feels anxious and numb at the same time. Part 2, the music video for Simple Song, translates these feelings into the dynamics of a romantic relationship.”

On the new album, Annelotte had this to say: "If it were called American Heartbreak, you wouldn’t bat an eye. Somehow calling it European Heartbreak feels far less comfortable, almost like a statement in itself. I’m Dutch, hence European. The focus of the record is Europe. As for Heartbreak, for mea heartbreak symbolises any kind of falling apart of one of these concepts or stories we invent for ourselves, like romantic love, a sense of identity, nationality, an economic system. It’s kind of a universal thing in my mind.”
