‘Denial: Reimagined’, produced by AII vocalist, Patty Walters, will be followed by EPs taking the themes of ‘Anger’, ‘Bargaining’ and ‘Acceptance’. Each will also feature artwork which will represent a respective quarter of a larger piece of art, complete when all four artworks have been pieced together.

“We believe that reimagined songs can breathe new life and meaning into the lyrics, opening the door to find further truths within music,” says Walters. We hope that you enjoy this new, exciting, and immersive extension of ‘The Great Depression’.”
