Le Cat Trong Ly Releases ‘Don’t Worry, Let’s Start Over’
Da Lat Singer Songwriter Calls Up Chamber Orchestra For New Album
Angel-voiced singer songwriter Le Cat Trong Ly recorded her new album ‘Don’t Worry, Let’s Start Over’ with a 12-person chamber orchestra. String, wood and percussion add depth to the Da Lat artist’s usual simplified acoustic sound heard on her 2011 debut, also called ‘Le Cat Trong Ly’, and albums ‘Age 25’ released in 2013 and 2015’s ‘The Dreamer’.
The recording, released on 24th July, was laid down ‘live’ in the studio in Hanoi in December last year in just a day and a half and will be released in two very special limited editions — one is made from bamboo and the other a combination of lacquer and bamboo.
