Emma Hewitt – Ghost of the Light

New album from Emma Hewitt, ‘Ghost of the Light’

The multi-talented Aussie artist returns with only her second full-length album in over a decade. It’s an emotional and deeply personal work focused on memories, dreams, and the persisting spirit of people from our life’s history….

Her words and music convey the imagery of sweeping vistas and landscapes (“The River,” “Raindrop”), as well as dream-like fantasy worlds. Throughout the record, the listener is privy to a range of styles: anthemic ballads & indie rock, bouncing dance grooves, and even some synthwave-meets-80s-rock-guitar on the tracks, “Collide” and “Children.”

A special limited-edition vinyl release is also scheduled for release around July 7th.

Available now from Black Hole Recordings


Release Date: May 19, 2023

The depth of Emma Hewitt’s artistry is on full display as she returns in the roles of singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and co-producer on her astonishing new album, Ghost Of The Light.

Involved in every step of the creation from co-writing all songs and playing a multitude of instruments on the record, right through to taking the co-production reins and shooting her own music videos, Emma has been singularly focused with every aspect of bringing her creative vision to life.

Mixed by the legendary Alan Moulder (Smashing Pumpkins, Killers, Beach House, NIN, Wet Leg) alongside Will Brierre (The Killers, Stevie Nicks) and mastered by John Davis (Lana Del Rey, London Grammar, Florence & The Machine), the lush sonics of ‘Ghost’ will be available on sumptuous 140-gram red, limited-edition vinyl. Alongside its digital/streaming and CD formats, the vinyl release is available to pre-order here. [https://blackhole.lnk.to/ghostofthelight]

To fall in love with ‘Ghost Of The Light’ is as simple as clicking Play. Those seeking to experience all it offers though will want to dive deeper into Emma’s lyrics and private universe. The album’s title, ‘Ghost Of The Light’, is Emma’s meditation on memories and how they shape us: those instantly recalled, the dreams half-remembered and the fragmented reminiscences, just beyond our reach, but always with us somehow. Emma channelled all of this into a collection of introspective, intimate songs, and ones that may yet inform her future.

On cuts like the cinematic ‘Into My Arms’ and comforting ‘Everlasting’, Emma addresses more contemporary memories, specifically those involving (either through distance or circumstance), separation. Contrastingly, ‘Collide’ and ‘Children’ have their inspirational bedrock in her formative years as tributes to the beauty and simplicity of early friendships. ‘Raindrop’ tackles more coming-of-age moments, specifically ones where a fork in the road has been reached, whilst ‘Warrior’ contemplates the lengths we’ll go to protect those closest to us. Emma’s crystalline vocals are the constant as she narrates us through her history and inner landscape.
