Sam Morton, the musical duo of singer, songwriter, and Oscar-nominated actor Samantha Morton and music producer and co-songwriter Richard Russell—the boss of XL Recordings—have released their debut album.

Over 12 tracks, Daffodils & Dirt builds a “deeply personal musical world,” with Russell’s soundscapes providing a rich foundation for Morton’s ethereal vocals. It features Alabaster DePlume, Laura Groves, and Jack Peñate.

Last year, the pair released limited edition vinyl-only singles Hunger Hill Road / Ghosts Are Dancing and Supplication / Headbouncing.
