Sorrow: Under The Yew Possessed

After a long wait, we are delighted to be shipping the official reissue of Sorrow’s neo-folk masterpiece Under The Yew Possessed. Originally released in 1993 by World Serpent, this is an expanded edition with extra sleeve notes and exclusive archive photographs. Following a limited, sold out pressing on Record Store Day Under The Yew Possessed is now available generally.

Under The Yew Possessed is the debut album by Sorrow, a group comprised primarily of Rose McDowall and her then husband Robert Lee. Originally released on World Serpent in 1993, Under The Yew Possessed was a stylistic jump from an artist associated primarily with sparkling pop music and a cult hit in the growing neo-folk movement. Self-recorded by the duo with guest musicians from the hidden reverse of the U.K.’s post industrial landscape, this is the first time this work has been available on vinyl.
