When Vogue asked Teresinha Landeiro the question “past or future?” in a recent profile, the rising Fado artist’s answer was the opposite of ambiguous: “Future, always.”
And so goes the flow with this, the release of her latest single “Amanhã” — arriving with the Portuguese singer/songwriter’s album, Agora, released April 30th via Justin Time Records.
Featured as a “gem” that “shines brightly” by Consequence of Sound, Landeiro has quickly been confirmed as a foremost representative of the new Fado generation.
With performances at the Festival Caixa Alfama, EDP Fado Cafe NOS Alive, Fado Festival in Bogotá, Buenos Aires, and Seville, and more to her extensive credit, Landeiro got her start very much in the way Fado was first formed: performing on the night of her 12th birthday at Lisbon’s Casa de Linhares — a destination restaurant nestled in the underpinnings of an 18th century palace.
Produced by Pedro de Castro — who also produced her 2018 debut, Namoro — and featuring musicians Gaspar Varela, Roda de Samba, and João Pedro Coelho, Agora reveals a 10-track songscape as ambitious and light as the singer/songwriter’s own personality.
“Amanhã” is available now. Agora is available was released April 30th, 2021 via Justin Time Records.
