Blanco White Releases New Album ‘Tarifa’ Today Via Nettwerk

September 29, 2023 BY Emma Orland

London based singer, songwriter Blanco White has releases his new album Tarifa via Nettwerk. Self-produced by Blanco White (aka Josh Edwards) in collaboration with Nubiyan Twist‘s Pilo Adami and with additional production from Bullion (Nilüfer Yanya, Hayden Thorpe), the album features previously released singles “Una Noche Más”, the album’s title track and transportive dream-folk odyssey “Silver Beaches”. Listen HERE.

Blanco White has already crafted a sound of his own with his off-world explorations of Latin American and Andalusian folk music. Tarifa straddles numerous genres, leaning into dream pop references like Beach House with extensive use of organs and synths, alongside more organic instrumentation and percussion. Its tender, folk-leaning poetic side draws on sources like Feist, with the acoustic Andean instruments the charango and ronroco remaining centrepieces of Blanco White’s sound.

Rooted in resilience, recovery and relief, Tarifa is as much an album about healing as it is one about escape, exploring new worlds, and building new worlds of his own. The lyrical themes move from cosmic wonder and our potential isolation in the universe, to hinting at the abstract and metaphysical, drawing from Edwards’ ongoing recovery from a debilitative chronic pain diagnosis.

Blanco White released his debut album On the Other Side in 2020which has since seen over 130 million streams, and has received wide praise from CLASH Magazine, The Independent, Billboard, Wonderland Magazine, Pop Matters, American Songwriter and more, and has embarked on numerous global tours including support runs with Jose Gonzalez and Gregory Alan Isakov as well as momentous headline shows of his own, including a sold out night at London’s famous Union Chapel.

Blanco White‘s new album Tarifa is today, 29th September via Nettwerk. Blanco White will tour the new album this autumn with dates across North America and Europe. Tickets available HERE.
