In a personal message sent through Doomtree’s newsletter, Dessa dropped some exclusive details regarding the experimental remix; including the release date and featured instruments.

Set to release Oct. 4, the wholly organic ensemble enlists; stand-up bass, viola, grand piano, vibraphone, mandolin, and timpani instrumentation.  The assortment of live instruments breathes new life into the reshaped material enshrouding the lyrics in a completely different atmosphere than before.

The final track from, Castor, The Twin, is the first single from her next full-length album.  Though Dessa has only stated the new LP will release next year, “The Beekeeper,” will give us a window into that work as she seeks to continue interweaving organic instrumentation into her future music.
