Scottish Fiction and Last Night From Glasgow are proud to present 'Magic 8', the lead single from Annie Booth's new EP 'Spectral'.

Lead single 'Magic 8' showcases perfectly Booth's lyrical frankness as she concedes “This is all I have to give to you and it's nothing”, atop elegant acoustic guitar playing and building instrumentation; exposing herself and her shortcomings to the listener with a touching sincerity. It is a song which freely admits the writer does not have the answers; delving into the feeling of hopelessness and melancholy which permeates in all our lives, whether we admit it or not.

'Spectral', the EP from which 'Magic 8' is taken from, follows on from 2017’s triumphant debut album 'An Unforgiving Light', and is a far more intimate collection of songs. Working with acclaimed producer Chris McCrory (Catholic Action, Siobhan Wilson) 'Spectral' showcases bittersweet notions set against sparse and creeping instrumentation. Affecting and dense in subject matter, 'Spectral' traces Booth’s maturing development as a songwriter both musically and lyrically.
