EDITORS’ NOTES

The word solastalgia refers to feeling distress or sadness when the environment around you changes. And a lot has changed for veteran singer/songwriter Missy Higgins in the six years since her last album of original music. The artist confronts memories, relationships and social turmoil, while toying with new sounds that push her musical boundaries. “Cemetery”, a lightly thumping electro-pop track, paradoxically sings of feeling alive while sneaking into a cemetery; “49 Candles” is a stirring ode to those lost in the 2016 Orlando shooting; and “The Old Star” concludes the album with surprisingly deep bass and compelling electronic vocals.
