Astrid Swan

From The Bed and Beyond is an album produced by Astrid Swan.

It is an album about the aftermath of breast cancer. It is about the body; giving birth, becoming a mother, then becoming a patient – becoming a physical body that is defined by medicine, controlled and intervened, unknown and simultaneously more feeling than ever. It’s a pop record about loss, death, grief and hope.

The album will be released in March 2017 and will be accompanied by live performances that incorporate music, movement, theater, puppeteering and an element of the unknown.
