Vinyl LP Pressing

Rhiannon Giddens’ 2021 album, They’re Calling Me Home, was recorded with Italian multi-instrumentalist Francesco Turrisi. Giddens and Turrisi both live in Ireland when they aren’t on tour. The two expats found themselves drawn to the music of their native and adoptive countries of America, Italy, and Ireland during lockdown. Exploring the emotions brought up by the moment, Giddens and Turrisi decamped to Hellfire, a small studio on a working farm outside of Dublin, to record these songs over six days. The result is a 12-track album that speaks of the longing for the comfort of home, as well as the metaphorical “call home” of death, which has been a tragic reality for so many during the COVID-19 crisis.
