Hejira shares a new track from their forthcoming second album

Twistedsoul ~ Hejira“These broken ribs will protect you…” sings Rahel Debebe-Dessalegne in the beautiful lead single ‘Ribs’ lifted off Hejira’s forthcoming second album Thread of Gold. The track explores Rahel Debebe-Dessalegne’s changing relationship with her homeland of Ethiopia.

Both personal and global in sentiment, instrumentation and style, ‘Ribs’ weaves together the many ribbons of Hejira’s musical outlook.

A yearning, lushly orchestrated and subtly dark piece, full of soft, intimate vocal delivery and twisting piano chords, ‘Ribs’ hangs on its heartbreaking lyrical refrain: these broken ribs will protect you.

Listen below and look out for Hejira’s new album which is set to be released early next year.
