If you're not familiar with Snowbird just yet, you might know who it contains - singer/songwriter Stephanie Dosen and Cocteau Twins' Simon Raymonde. 'Porcelain' is the first track from their debut album moon, scheduled for release in January on Raymonde's label Bella Union. If you weren't sold on the song just yet, the whole album has got some incredible contributors that might bring you back in - Radiohead's Ed O'Brien and Phil Selway, Midlake's Eric Pulido and McKenzie Smith, Paul Gregory from Lanterns on the Lake, and Jonathan Wilson. moon is set up to be an absolute stunner of an album.

When asked about the album, Raymonde pointed out, "Stephanie was the first singer I had worked with since Elizabeth [Fraser of Cocteau Twins] that I had a real musical empathy with. She could do anything. No one had ever sung with Midlake on record before Stephanie, while Massive Attack asked her to be their lead singer on tour—ironic really given that Elizabeth had too! She also sang with Chemical Brothers. But we’d never written music together at home. I never intended Cocteau Twins to be my last band, but frankly I wasn't just going to jump back on any old nag just for the sake of it. I wrote every piece of music at night, in semi-darkness so that the space didn’t feel like my living room. The moon was very important for the light it reflected." [via Pitchfork]
