Anat Porat's Enchanting New Album 'Back To New'

Back To New

Anat Porat

The award-winning Israeli stage star, Anat Porat, returns with her enchanting debut album, Back To New. An 11-track collection of heartfelt stories and warm acoustic sounds, the album offers a stunning look into the life experiences of this beloved artist.

Lead single, The Loyal Father, is a dark yet light-hearted tale of a king's enforcer who must choose between his loyalty to the king or the love of his daughter. Beautifully captured in the stunning video, directed by Julian M. Grünthal and shot at a breathtaking Swiss lake in both winter and summer, the song's visuals evoke classic Nordic imagery and a heartfelt story of love and family.

Back To New marks a new chapter for Anat Porat following an extended hiatus devoted to raising her family. Previously she had made a name for herself performing in the 1999 Israeli production of Les Misérables before gracefully stepping back into the limelight in 2016 with the same production at the Israeli National Theatre. Now, armed with the rich life experiences of more than two decades, Anat has created an album filled with captivating compositions and lyrics.

The Loyal Father and Back To New offer audiences the chance to immerse themselves in the captivating stories of Anat Porat. Her emotionally-resonant sound and lyrical choice creates a beautiful portrait of family and loyalty that will enliven any fan of Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Keren Ann. It is an outstanding work that has the power to transport you to another world, whilst connecting to your own.
