Rebecca Foon announces new album Waxing Moon

Listen to the track "Dreams To Be Born" and catch Rebecca on tour with Leif Vollebekk this November/December. Waxing Moon is out 21 February 2020.

Constellation is thrilled to announce our first release of 2020: Rebecca Foon’s Waxing Moon. Many fans will recognize her name from previous work under the moniker Saltland, not to mention her collaborative efforts with Esmerine, Thee Silver Mt. Zion, and many more; however, Waxing Moon is the first album released under Foon’s own name and it finds her pivoting towards new creative ground with an emphasis on strikingly elegant piano and vocals. Waxing Moon also features an array of musical guests including Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire) and Mishka Stein (Patrick Watson) on acoustic and electric basses, Sophie Trudeau (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) on violin, Jace Lasek (The Besnard Lakes) on electric guitar, and Patrick Watson as co-vocalist on the dreamlike “Vessels.” Listen to “Dreams To Be Born” for a taste of this deeply affecting, intimate new album:

Outside of her musical work, Rebecca Foon is a dedicated advocate for environmental issues and climate change awareness. She is a co-founder of Pathway To Paris, a non-profit organizing concerts for climate action since 2015 that have featured Patti Smith, Michael Stipe, Naomi Klein, Thom Yorke, Cat Power, Bill McKibben, and many others. All Waxing Moon royalties shall be donated to Pathway To Paris and its 1000 Cities green transition initiative in collaboration with the United Nations.

“This album is by far the most raw record I have ever made, and the most direct channeling of emotions I have ever put into music. We are in a time of enormous sadness and fear as humanity and all sentient beings are faced with incredible unknowns about our collective future. This album channels my love for our beautiful world and the personal heartbreak I have experienced over the last couple of years in my own life, amidst despair over our dying planet facing mass extinction. Making this music was a way for me to communicate on some level the interplay between the micro/macro, the exchange between trying to live in each precious moment while navigating the beauty, chaos and pain of being alive together, the spirit world that surrounds us and how it can touch us in the most unanticipated magical ways, and the human struggle of how to truly make a positive impact in these dire times – with all the hope and loss of hope that comes with it. Making this music has saved me on so many levels, and I hope it can provide some connection to another realm for a moment as it did for me. I am so grateful. With love and hope for a renewable, equitable and just world. xoxo” – Rebecca Foon
