The Beacon exists in Lancashire, England, not far from where my father was born and where I spent summers as a child. I have been returning to it my whole life. The photograph above is featured on the gatefold of the LP. It’s me as a child, walking up to beacon, somehow so telling of the future. -- Tess Roby
