Today, South African musician Cherilyn MacNeil, aka Dear Reader is announcing her first album in four years. ‘Day Fever’, is set for release Feb 24th via City Slang and the first single ‘I Know You Can Hear It’ is online now.
Recorded in San Francisco and laden with raw, orchestral indie-pop, ‘I Know You Can Hear It’ shows Dear Reader in a new light to any of her previous work. Her delicate vocals and warm acoustics tackle dark topics that run throughout the album.
Director Annikki Heinemann, explains the video: “Dear Reader’s song deals with the theme of death, so we decided to tell the story of a young man who has died, and his transition into the next realm. Cherilyn and her band mates play four ‘ferrywomen’ who help guide the man to the afterlife, and rather than a place to be feared, it is a place where he can be free.”
