Alexandra Alden & Band: Album Preview
Alexandra Alden is a singer-songwriter and musician who marries the ephemeral with the personal through her songs. Having been launched to local fame with her contribution as a jury member on the hit TV show, 'The XFactor', Alden has become known for her bold statements, gentle demeanor and insightful musings into the creative and artistic worlds, which fuel her own musical creations.
Her debut EP 'The Curious Child' spawned two number one hits, whilst her following album 'Wild Honey', which was an ode to nature and the parallels between love, relationships and our environment framed in the context of the Maltese landscape, gained recognition overseas through her tours around the Netherlands and Scandinavia, winning multiple awards. Now, fresh out of lockdown and with an upcoming album planned for release this November, Alden has already previewed her new songs together with her band on national Dutch daytime TV, North Sea Round Town Festival and at Studio Trad in Belgium. The first single released this June, titled 'Helium’ sets the tone for even more new music to come. Situated between two homes herself, and having been isolated from travelling back and forth for a long time, Alexandra has embedded this within her creative process. The lyrics, the images and the creative collaborations which have developed with the album all speak of the intricately webbed life that the artist now lives, balancing between The Netherlands and Malta.
For this special event, Alden will be previewing her forthcoming album, 'Leads to Love', for the exclusive audience of APS Summer Festival.
