Trip-hopping folkie Beth Orton is holed up in the studio working on an
album tentatively titled Inevitable, the follow-up to last year's critically
acclaimed Trailer Park, according to her publicity firm, Girlie Action.
Joining her for the sessions are fellow neo-folk performer Ben Harper
and New Orleans pianist Dr. John, although whether their contributions
will be heard on the album remains to be seen, said Girlie Action's Felice
Eckhart. Inevitable is tentatively slated for release in 1999.
