Picador author commissioned to write stories for the band Daughter

Award-winning Picador author Stuart Evers – responsible for Your Father Sends His Love and Ten Stories About Smoking - has been specially commissioned by indie folk band Daughter to write three exclusive stories.

The band's promotional films for their new record, "Not To Disappear" will be based on the stories.

The stories, Dress, Window and 5,040, have been adapted by filmmakers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard, directors of the BAFTA-nominated film 20,000 Days on Earth featuring Nick Cave.

Evers said: "The stories came from some initial rough ideas from Elena and Igor from the band, and I was given the scope to turn them into something that felt true to the spirit of this brilliant record. The three stories, and the subsequent films, are very different, but are unified by one central image - that of a red dress. It has been a joy working with Daughter, and Iain and Jane, and I think the results are moving and beautiful."

Daughter’s "Not to Disappear" – along with Evers’s three commissioned stories – will be released in January 2016.
