Tal Wilkenfeld Releases “Love Remains”

Tal Wilkenfeld: Love RemainsTal Wilkenfeld has returned with a new solo album called Love Remains. As opposed to her 2007 instrumental release, Transformation, her latest record focuses on her songwriting and marks her vocal debut. While there are several moments of just Wilkenfeld with her bass, she says that’s not the focus.

“It’s almost the opposite of a bass album in some ways,” she told Billboard. “A lot of the songs don’t even have bass on them. On the first track, ‘Corner Painter,’ I played bass on the organ but it didn’t feel right to put electric bass on it. And there’s another song, ‘One Thing After Another,’ that’s just me and acoustic guitar — we ended up putting woodwinds on it, but no bass. So it’s a big leap for me, but that’s what felt most authentic for these songs. I had to come at the album not as a bass player or even a musician, really, but more as a songwriter and an artist.”

A particularly bass-intensive moment on the album is “Haunted Love,” which includes Wilkenfeld rolling arpeggiated lines to support her vocals:

Love Remains is available now on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3). Wilkenfeld has a handful of tour dates over the next few months in support of the release.
