Alanis Obomsawin
Bush Lady

CST132    180gLP / DL    Out 15 June 2018


Today we celebrate Alanis Obomsawin’s Bush Lady, an album that was released in limited quantities via Obomsawin’s own private press in 1988. With no official distribution or promotional support, Bush Lady never got the recognition it deserved at the time; however, over the past three decades it has become a rare collector’s item, renowned for its ability to blend traditional Indigenous songcraft with modern composition and arrangements.
Constellation is thrilled to reissue this landmark album on 180g vinyl and CD for the first time, complete with remastered audio and deluxe artwork. Bush Lady is now available for purchase in the CST webshop, on Bandcamp, and in fine independent record stores.

Praise for Bush Lady:
“Stunning… Bush Lady is an astounding, genre-blurring work with an otherworldly female voice at the centre.” – Maclean’s
“An essential fixture in the history of folk music.” – Norman Records
“The most diverse, prolific and timeless artist of our time.” – Rabble
