Healing Is A Miracle

  • Julianna Barwick - Healing Is A Miracle
10th July 2020 / CD & LP / Ninja Tune
"As the title implies, it’s designed to sooth and mend, and across its eight compositions Barwick employs her “most trusted” instruments and gear to build ambient-electronic songs that are comforting and angelic, kindred to the work of Grouper and Susumu Yokota."

Healing Is A Miracle


Amazing reverbs and her voice is stunning as a cinematic, ghostly centrepoint. Epic without sounding too glossy. Lush guest contributions from Mary Lattimore and Jónsi too.

Four years on from the release of her last, critically acclaimed LP, Julianna Barwick returns with “Healing Is A Miracle” on new home, Ninja Tune.

A distinctive meditation on sound, reverb and the voice, “Healing Is A Miracle” is a record built on improvisation and a close affinity to a couple of trusted items of gear, from which she spins engrossing, expansive universes. Additionally, Barwick draws on the input of three collaborators with whom she has nurtured deep friendships with over the years: Jónsi (Sigur Rós), Nosaj Thing and Mary Lattimore; who each gently nudge out at the edges of her organically-evolved sound.

The album’s artwork was shot in Iceland by Joel Kazuo Knoernschild and is taken from a series of aerial films shot by drone above the country’s breathtaking coastline, which also make up the video for ‘Inspirit’ announced today alongside the single.

+ LP in a 12” sleeve with 3mm spine. Printed on reverse board - full colour. 12” 140g black vinyl in full colour printed inners. Limited Edition First Run includes a 12x12 signed Artboard Print.

+ CD is in a remus spine softpack/digisleeve - printed on reverse board - full colour.
