Though for the past year Nick Thorburn has mostly been focused on releasing music and touring with Mister Heavenly, 2012 will see him return to his primary project: Islands‘ new album, A Sleep & A Forgetting, will be out on February 14. That’s Valentine’s Day. And that’s on purpose.

“This album is far more personal than any I’ve made before,” says Thorburn in a statement. “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 its coming out on Valentine’s Day.”

The full tracklisting can be seen below.

A Sleep & A Forgetting Tracklist:
01. In A Dream It Seemed Real
