'La Vita Nuova' was written as an elegy to desire. Upon its completion it became a conjuring. Candid and passionate, Maria McKee has quite simply, had a beatific awakening and in a crescendo of prose, her new album unlocks this story. It's been thirteen years since her last studio album, 'Late December', which was released in 2007. 'La Vita Nuova' is a homage to Dante's opus on unrequited love.
