In the three years since the release of her debut solo album Honey From The Tombs, Amy Millan’s band Stars have put out a critically acclaimed album, an EP and a remix collection, so it’s high time the talented Canadian climbed back into her very own spotlight. Sticking with the morbidity awareness, her second release will go by the (possibly elephant-inspired) name of Masters Of The Burial and will hit the shops on September 8th through Arts & Crafts International. Recorded earlier this year with producer Martin Davis Kinack (Sarah Harmer, Broken Social Scene) at The Well studio set in the hilly Ontario countryside, the 11-track album is billed as “A work of true love and devotion immediately apparent in the warmth of Millan’s angelic vocals and the depth of each song as they unfold.”

Guest performers on Master Of The Burial include Feist, Christine Bougie, Dan & Jenny Whiteley, The Stills’ Liam O’Neil, and Evan Cranley of Stars. Fans of Amy’s cover of Death Cab For Cutie’s ‘I Will Follow You Into The Dark’ will be happy to know that she’s finally cut a studio version, and she also tackles Sarah Harmer’s beautiful ‘Old Perfume’ from Weeping Tile’s 2001 release, Valentino. No European tourdates have been announced just yet but there will no doubt be some coming up.
