About this item
It was crowned Album of the Year by Prog Magazine, and was also named as one of The Sunday Times' seven "must- hear" Albums of 2021. The judges of the Welsh Music Prize recently joined the chorus of praise, shortlisting the selfproduced album for the prestigious award. The record features the BBC 6 Music playlisted singles 'Show Your Face' & 'The Art of Losing', as well as a showstopping duet 'The Exchange' with James Dean Bradfield (Manic Street Preachers) and drums from Sterling Campbell (David Bowie, Duran Duran).
The Art of Losing successfully transformed its wall-to-wall critical acclaim into a #1 spot on the iTunes album chart, and racked up "album of the week" plaudits everywhere from The Sunday Times, The Line of Best Fit, Mail on Sunday, and The Telegraph, as well a coveted place in The Guardian and Mojo's Albums of the Month.
Produced and written by Davies, The Art Of Losing ambitiously navigates the topic of loss in all its forms and was written and recorded during an unfeasibly busy few years as Davies found solace and purpose in a range of projects whilst navigating her griefs. Most recently this came via the 2020 release of her collaborative album In Memory of My Feelings with Bernard Butler, duetting with the Manic Street Preachers on Resistance Is Futile, and being personally invited by The Cure's Robert Smith to perform at his Meltdown Festival. She also brought a new generation of ears to legendary Scottish rock band Simple Minds, where she spent much of the last five years appearing on Big Music (2015) and Walk Between Worlds (2018).
