The album comes in two parts, which will be released separately

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and composer Emile Mosseri have made a two-part collaborative album.

Set to be released on Ghostly International, the first instalment, I Could Be Your Dog (Prequel), is due out next month. It takes in synthesisers, piano, electronics and vocals, and will be followed next year by the second part of the record, I Could Be Your Moon. You can check out 'Log In Your Fire', the first track to be unveiled from I Could Be Your Dog (Prequel), above.

"It felt like we were writing music through one another," Mosseri said in a statement about the album, with Smith adding: "I first imagined we would both go more in our 'composerly' direction. I was pleasantly surprised that we created songs. It feels like a perfect blend of the composers we both are – that like to weave narrative song structure into cinematic arrangements."

Ghostly International will release I Could Be Your Dog (Prequel) on September 15, 2021.
