Orlando Weeks previews his debut solo album with new single ‘Milk Breath’

It's about watching his son sleep.

Orlando Weeks has shared his new single ‘Milk Breath’.

It’s the latest cut from his upcoming debut album ‘A Quickening’. His first project since he wrote, illustrated and soundtracked alternative festive tale The Gritterman, the full-length was penned in the lead up to the birth of Orlando’s new baby, and it’s due for release on 12th June.

“This is about watching my son sleep,” he says. “When you’ve rocked him for 45 minutes and finally the wriggling has stopped and the muscles have relaxed and you put him down in slow motion and then stand, without breathing for another 20 minutes praying that he’s asleep.”
