The release date is set for the Piperlain EP “Time”! To be released on November 30, 2021, Time features four tracks written during different points in the early collaboration between artists Ben and Bec. It was recorded at MusicPro studios by engineer Paul I and mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London by engineer Geoff Pesche. Produced by Paul I and Ben Knight, the Time EP is the first release since the Mother Mourned concept album received positive reviews in 2017. Originally scheduled for release in 2019, plans were put on hold to release the EP due the Covid-19 pandemic. The Time EP spans the formative years of collaboration between Ben and Bec as they started to collaborate, each bringing their collective musical influences and styles to create the Piperlain sound. The songs carry universal themes and are described as often quirky, with threads of haunting and meaningful lyrics. The EP carries the alternative folk/rock/pop style that fans can expect – a punchy opening with “Time” followed by a touch of frivolity in “Cruel World”. The EP then takes listeners deeper into a journey of eclectic, rock/pop soulfulness with the track “Deceived” and closes on a hauntingly diabolical love tune called “Taken”.
