Harpist and composer Mary Lattimore has announced her new album Goodbye, Hotel Arkada with a video for its lead single “And Then He Wrapped His Wings Around Me.” The album is due out October 6 via Ghostly. She also announced a run of U.S. tour dates kicking off in Philadelphia on September 24. Check out the full tracklist, the video for “And Then He Wrapped His Wings Around Me,” and the full list of tour dates below.

The album draws its title from a hotel on the island of Hvar in Croatia. “There’s a big old hotel there called the Hotel Arkada, and you could tell it had been hosting holiday-goers for decades in a great way,” Lattimore said in a statement. “I walked around the lobby and the empty ballrooms and it looked like a well-worn, well-loved place. My friend Stacey who lives there told me to ‘Say goodbye to Hotel Arkada, it might not be here when you get back’ and I heard soon after that it was actually going to be renovated in a very crisp, modern way.” 

Goodbye, Hotel Arkada features Lol Tolhurst of the Cure, Meg Baird, Rachel Goswell of Slowdive, Roy Montgomery, Samara Lubelski, and Walt McClements. Lattimore shared a statement on the new songs: 

“When I think of these songs, I think about fading flowers in vases, melted candles, getting older, being on tour and having things change while you’re away, not realizing how ephemeral experiences are until they don’t happen anymore, fear for a planet we’re losing because of greed, an ode to art and music that’s really shaped your life that can transport you back in time, longing to maintain sensitivity and to not sink into hollow despondency.”

Last spring Lattimore shared a collaborative album with Paul Sukeena called West Kensington. In the summer she joined Tom Scharpling on his 24-Hour edition of the Best Show. Her last LP was 2021’s Collected Pieces II.
