Press Release :
Mercury nominated British singer songwriter Lou Rhodes returns with her third solo album "One Good Thing", released March 14th through Motion Audio.

'One Good Thing' brilliantly and beautifully reflects the very natural talent of one of Britain's most accomplished and unconventional singer songwriters. Recorded in just two weeks in live takes with minimal editing and overdubs the result is a record of disarming honesty.

"Most of the music I'm inspired by was either recorded years ago or uses similar old-school analogue techniques. I guess if I had a reference point for the recording of this record it'd be stuff like Nick Drake's 'Five Leaves Left' or Nico's 'Chelsea Girl'. Basically guitar and voice recorded together as it's played with the sound of a room rather than a deadened vocal booth. Then the addition of beautiful, simple strings and the odd frame drum..." (Lou Rhodes)

This record charts the last two years of her life, from the very painful loss of her sister in 'Janey', through the heartbreak of 'The Ocean' to the rebirth of 'One Good Thing'.

'There For The Taking' the second track on the album, will be released from today as a free download single via lourhodes.com. The single will be released with a B-Side "Falling Down" on the December 14th through all good online retailers.

"With 'There For The Taking' I wanted to express the way that, if we just stop and fall back into the arms of the universe for a moment, she usually comes through." (Lou Rhodes)

Rhodes will be releasing the album through The Cinematic Orchestra's new label Motion Audio on March 14th 2010. Motion Audio is distributed by Ninja Tune.

Rhodes will be playing a number of intimate UK shows to preview new material this winter.
