It's not often you come across an artist you can genuinely refer to as a cult legend, but Vashti Bunyan is truly that. A full 35 years on from her only previous album, the singer returns with her first new solo work, a breathtakingly beautiful album.

Far from being simply some kind of appendage tacked onto the end of an amazing story and a past classic, Lookaftering is a fully beautiful album in its own right. Produced by fellow Edinburgh resident Max Richter (whose Blue notebooks album was released on Fat Cats 130701 imprint in 2004) - who also co-arranged with Vashti, it's a rich, beautifully arranged and stirring album.

Developing gradually and organically " with work initially taking place between Max and Vashtis homes, and then at various studios in Edinburgh, London and Glasgow " Lookaftering is anchored around Vashtis voice and picked acoustic guitar, and Maxs piano playing and co-arranging.

Its instrumentation includes a string quartet, oboe, harp, French horn, recorder, flute, hammer dulcimer, glasses, harmonium, and Rhodes piano, and it features contributions from Joanna Newsom, Devendra Banhart, Adem, Adam Pierce (Mice Parade), Robert Kirby (Nick Drake / etc.), Otto Hauser and Kevin Barker (Espers / Currituck County)
