Moon Phase Release Plan
Look to the sky
Alternative pop singer songwriter Hillary Capps will release each song off her forthcoming full-length in real time with the moon.
Why the moon? Capps found that there was a through-line on the album about finding balance and searching for a sense of home. The moon represent s thi s ba l anced connectivity, ever cycling and evolving.
Every stage of the lunar cycle brings a new energy to our lives that can be used to our benefit. Capps, having learned to connect with herself in this new light over the course of 2019, decided to pair each of the eleven songs on the album with the individual phases of the moon and what they represent.
Hillary Capps's single "You Could Be The Moon" kickstarts the album concept and will be released on the January 24th 2020 New Moon, alongside another single "Slow Motion". The remaining songs will be rolled out in tandem with each moon phase over four cycles (January through May).
