Shirley Collins has released a new video for “Death And The Lady“, which you can watch below.
The song is taken from Lodestar, her first album in 38 years.
“This is another centuries old song,” says Collins. “It reminds me of a wonderful scene in Ingmar Bergman’s ‘The Seventh Seal’ where, on a wild, lonely beach a knight plays a game of chess with Death – which of course he can’t win.”
The tracklisting for Lodestar is:
Awake Awake – The Split Ash Tree – May Carol – Southover
The Banks of Green Willow
Death And the Lady
Old Johnny Buckle
Sur le Borde de l’Eau
The Rich Irish Lady/Jeff Sturgeon
The Silver Swan
