Rose McDowall’s post-Strawberry Switchblade masterpiece.

Sorrow_Sleep Now Forever_One Sheet

Sleep Now Forever is the second and final album released by Sorrow, the post-Strawberry Switchblade group fronted by singer Rose McDowall. Originally released in 1999 and long since deleted it is a cornucopia of pastoral, elegiac folk music, swirling atmospherics, hymnal compositions and above it all the alternating towering and fragile vocal performances of McDowall. Recorded in the late 90s with fellow band member and co-songwriter Robert Lee, Sleep Now Forever is the definitive statement by the now defunct group and Rose McDowall’s most complete long-form work to date.

Sleep Now Forever is released for Record Store Day 2024, April 20th on 2LP (1 Side Etched). Support independent record stores.
