At the end of last year Anneke van Giersbergen announced the release of her new solo album 'The Darkest Skies Are The Brightest', one of the most important and personal albums in Anneke’s career to date. An album inspired by heartbreak – not something Anneke ever anticipated writing. It will be released on February 26th, 2021.
The third single “Agape” off of said album sees the light of day today and Anneke is very excited to be sharing this new piece of music with the world. She comments: “Agape refers to the highest form of unconditional love, the type of love we all yearn for. I’ve tried to create a distinct echo of a love song from the ‘70s with a meditative guitar arrangement. The lush sound of a string quartet adds a dreamy quality to the song.”
