Actor/director/musician Samantha Morton has landed on XL Recordings for the release of her long-awaited debut LP Daffodils & Dirt. Working again with XL boss Richard Russell on production, the pair as SAM MORTON spin a hazy, at times haunted take on folksy electronica and R&B with vocal melodies, strings, and horns that shimmer and fray like that classic muscle car on the cover. Morton dips between character sketches and autobiographical bloodletting in her evocative lyricism while Russell blends influences like paint on a palette for tracks like ‘Broxtowe Girl’ that feel as though they’re in a lane all their own.

  • The album cover artwork features an archive photograph from acclaimed British-American photographer and visual artist Nick Waplington, who documented life on Nottingham’s Broxtowe Estate at the same time Morton was growing up there in the mid-1980s.
