‘If I (Was)’ was the first single to be lifted from the album ‘The Butterfly Ate The Pearl’ and features Hugo Race (guitar), Paul Phillips (lap steel), James Blackshaw (bass), and Otto Hauser from Vetiver (drums). The track is accompanied by a music video directed and animated by Eric Leiser.

‘The Butterfly Ate The Pearl’ will be the fourth long player and is the follow up to 2008’s re-mix and collaboration collection ‘Heart Of the Sun’ which contained remixes by the likes of Andrew W.K., Stephen O’Malley, Fovea Hex and Chris Carter / Cosey Fanny Tutti. Recorded and complied during the last year, and co-produced with Hugo Race, the new album is another great collection of hypnotic, magical and understated songs that Degens has become known for, but with ‘The Butterfly Ate The Pearl’ there is a more psychedelic feel and a real progression of sound, and it is without doubt her most accomplished release to date.
