Originally released in 2016, this new edition has been completely re-imagined, re-recorded and remastered bringing all of the beauty and darkness of the original into a more thrilling, vivid listen. This new edition features the debut single "Freezing" and sees Grace appear on all bar one of the tracks (she featured on 3 on the original release).
The album is inspired by New York's (in)famous Hotel Chelsea and concept-lite, tells the story of a haunting, brief but never forgotten love affair between an ingenue male and his femme fatale set against the backdrop of the Hotel and it's ghosts of celebrated artistic residents.
