Listen: Lucinda Chua – ‘Another Day’

Lucinda Chua has released a reimagining of Roy Harper’s classic song ‘Another Day’, her first music since the release of her EP Antidotes II. Covered by the likes of Kate Bush & Peter Gabriel, ‘Another Day’ was ushered into alternative folklore by 4AD alum This Mortal Coil in 1984, whose evocative rendition retains a special place at the heart of the label. Inspired by This Mortal Coil’s version, Chua’s interpretation is beautifully orchestrated through cinematic strings and hushed vocal.

‘Another Day’ is the centrepiece of a 4AD rarities compilation Pleasures and Treasures, an exclusive JCD in collaboration with Japan’s Tower Records and released on 3 June. The CD features exclusive live versions of tracks by Dry Cleaning and Big Thief, deep cuts by Rema-Rema, The Wolfgang Press and Colourbox, as well as old favourites Cocteau Twins, Lush, and the aforementioned This Mortal Coil.

Lucinda Chua is a singer, songwriter, composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist based in South London. Born in London and raised in Milton Keynes, Chua has English, Malaysian and ancestral Chinese roots. Having learned music by ear from the age of three using the Suzuki method (whereby young children are taught music in the same way they would a native language), Chua regards music as a natural form of non-verbal self-expression.
