Release date: February 2012
A Sleep & a Forgetting is the fourth studio album by Canadian indie rock band, Islands, released on February 14, 2012 on ANTI- Records.
"This album is far more personal than any I've made before," explains frontman Nick Thorburn. "I left New York after the end of a relationship and came to Los Angeles. There was a piano where I was staying and that's where I wrote these songs. This record deals with loss, with memory and forgetting and with dreaming. I started writing it on Valentine's Day and it's coming out on Valentine's Day."
