Julie Byrne - The Greater Wings

Ghostly International

A confrontation of grief and loss, Byrne emboldens her signature fingerpicked guitar work with digital textures, her singular songcraft completing a beautiful and lasting elegy.

Julie Byrne - The Greater Wings

Limited blood moon coloured vinyl.



Buffalo-born singer-songwriter capable of crafting raw magic. The release of Byrne's first album in six years comes alongside her signing to experimental and electronic-leaning label Ghostly International. Connecting her with producer Alex Somers (Sigur Rós, Julianna Barwick), Byrne completes the journey she started with the late Eric Littman, her longtime creative partner and friend whose life this album is very much a testament to.


A spellbinding record exploring the journey of grief, The Greater Wings offers raw, wild and wonderous moments in its shimmery soundscapes and intricate instrumentation. Whilst the soundscapes absorb the often heavy weight of her emotions Byrne makes music which puts the wind in your sails. A transformative record both thematically and sonically, written with love and intention, commemorating her deep friendship with Eric.
