Piano felt, electronic beats and analog synths form the sound world surrounding Nynke Laverman's voice.

A theatre performance by Plant  will follow at a later stage.

Plant  is a hopeful protest about our derailed relationship with the earth and changing our way of thinking. On September 17, the slow release will be complete and the album will be released on vinyl and CD. The live album release will take place on September 17 and 18 as part of Explore the North's The Summer Sessions.

Explore the North is co-producer of the Plant project.
