The time has finally arrived! Salena Godden‘s brand new release ‘The Lockdown EP’ is available to stream and download, with 50% of the profits being donated to NHS Charities.

Obviously our strong preference is that you buy it direct from our Bandcamp site, but this page has handy shortcuts to the release in all of the major digital providers, as well as our Bandcamp.

There’s more information on the release here, and you can watch the brand new video to lead poem ‘I Want to Be Your Wife’ below. Wherever you get it, we hope you enjoy!
