Singer-Songwriter Abigail Lapell Shared New Single + Video “Anniversary Song”

Celebrating the syntax and symbolism of commitment

Toronto singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Abigail Lapell has shared her upcoming album’s lead single + video, “Anniversary Song.” Recorded live with her band in a 200-year-old church, the track features an in-house harpsichord along with drums, bass, electric guitar and layers of doubled vocals and harmonies, brought together with lyrics that celebrate the syntax and symbolism of commitment.

Abigail Lapell says, “‘Anniversary Song’ was inspired by the idea of mashing-up traditional anniversary gifts (cotton, leather, diamonds) with the periodic table of elements (iron, carbon, silver) to celebrate the physical and symbolic bonds of togetherness.” A play on romantic “chemistry,” “Anniversary Song” highlights some of the album’s recurring dualities: literal and symbolic, earthly and otherworldly.

Alongside the release comes the announcement of her new album Anniversary, set for release on May 10 via Outside Music. An evocative collection of original love songs, the album balances upbeat earworms with elegiac ballads, ultimately emerging as an earnest celebration of commitment. Anniversary was recorded at the 200-year-old St. Mark’s Church in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario and was produced with Great Lake Swimmers’ Tony Dekker, who helped shape the project’s spooky, resonant sound while lending his voice to a few spellbinding duets. 

Abigail also announced plans for a North American tour this spring, making US stops across the East Coast. Tickets for all shows are available here.
