First Word Records is very pleased to welcome back Sarah Williams White, with some brand new music for 2021!

Emanating from the "hilly fields of Lewisham" in South London, Sarah Williams White is a singer songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. Her sound is a unique blend of psych-soul, folktronica and experimental pop.

Sarah released her acclaimed debut album 'Of The New World' on First Word in 2015, which was written, produced and performed by Sarah from her home studio, with the assistance of drummer, engineer & husband, Timmy Rickard. Her projects have seen support from the likes of Lauren Laverne (BBC 6 Music), Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6 Music), Jamie Cullum (BBC Radio 2), Clash & The Guardian, and she's toured the UK with Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip and Golden Rules (Lex). There have been additional collaborations with label-mate Quiet Dawn (on the recent compilation/EP 'A Family Affair') and with her brother, Paul White - a revered producer in his own right, with credits including Danny Brown and Sudan Archives.

Following a hiatus, in which she became a mother, Sarah brings us 'Nebula' - the first single from her forthcoming sophomore album 'Unfathomable', coming late 2021; a decade on from her self-released debut single.

About the track 'Nebula', Sarah says "after giving birth, I saw this completely unique new life and force of energy. My daughter's eyes are mind blowing every time I look into them, like a gateway. Everything about her brand new and yet genetically she also carries this rich colourful history, just like nebulae. Reminds me that we're all made up of the same molecular stuff as stars and space.."

With a voice reminiscent of Peggy Lee, tapestried harmony akin to Hiatus Kaiyote, beats fit for Little Dragon, and experimental production evocative of Kate Bush, Sarah Williams White's signature genre-defying sound invites us into a world uniquely hers.

'Nebula' is released digitally worldwide on October 1st 2021.

When I look into your eyes
I see a story beyond our time
Other dimensions
New stars
Like a nebula

When I look into your eyes
See every difference between you and I
So many colours
Oh the colours!
Like a nebula

How how can it be so so
How how can it be so so beautiful
Just a small piece of you
Like a new galaxy to me

When I look into your eyes
Such a small space to capture time
I love to get lost
I’m mesmerised when I look into your eyes

How how can it be so so
How how can it be so so beautiful
Just a small piece of you
Like a new galaxy to me
