Marketa Irglova Goes Solo: Watch The Trailer For Anar

Videos by American Songwriter

Since breaking everyone’s hearts in the Irish music film Once, Marketa Irglova has won an Academy Award, appeared on The Simpsons, toured and recorded as one half of The Swell Season, sang with Iron & Wine, and helped put together the Broadway rendition of the movie that made her famous.

Now the 23-year old Czech-born singer and classically-trained pianist is back with her debut solo album, Anar, (the Persian word for “pomegranate”) due October 11 on Anti-.

Recorded in Chicago at Soma Studios, the album was largely inspired by her artistic life in her new home town of New York City.

Watch an exclusive trailer for Anar below.
