Indeed, queer artist shirlette ammons concocted an album mixing various styles such as hip-hop, indie rock, soul. All the music was composed by Daniel Hart, who has worked among others with St. Vincent and Broken Social Scene.

The other distinctive feature of this album is that it consists of many duets. Shirlette has indeed invited full of talented artists to join her as Amelia Meath (Sylvan Esso) or Heather McEntire (Mount Moriah), and other more known as Meshell Ndegeocello or the band The Indigo Girls, which are of besides featuring in the first two singles "Earth Intro" and "Dear Nora". You can listen to both songs right below.

"As a part of the whole Language Barrier concept, I wanted to write an album that explores the ways we love across imposed and implied barriers. In this sense, Language Barrier is an album about love as an act of resistance. I also wanted to approach genre as a 'barrier' then break it down.

"The album seamlessly moves between indie and classic rock, hip hop and ambient soul.

"To have an opportunity to work with Meshell, The Indigo Girls, Amelia, Hiss Golden Messenger—and all on one record—is a dream come true," shirlette says.

"Language Barrier" due out February 5, 2016.
