Penelope Trappes will release her sophomore album, Penelope Two, via Houndstooth on October 26.

The album follows her debut album, Penelope One, released via Optimo Music in June last year, with a collection of 10 tracks that were "built around field recordings, mantras, and meditations," Trappes explains. In creating the atmospheric collection, Trappes explored writing with "guitars and synth drones, along with piano and reverb" in an effort "to create depth and texture.” Full of achingly beautiful and affecting tracks, Penelope Two was written following a period spent "being an empath with two dear friends, who lost very close loved ones," with the album also dedicated to them.

Ahead of the release, Trappes has shared the haunting video for the album's first single, "Carry Me," available via the player below.
