About the album - Love Letters EP
Anoushka Shankar is coming out with her new album ‘Love Letters EP’ this February, and this one showcases a shift in the intimacy and content that we’ve seen from the artist in the past. We will be seeing a reflection of themes that the artist has experienced in the last few years like health issues, heartbreak, and domestic upheaval.
However, Love Letters EP is more than just a collection of songs about heartbreak or loss, as they pull from various points in her lifetime like nostalgia, regret, pain, hope, and mark a quiet metamorphosis for the artist.
