Taken from upcoming new album, Crushing, due out February 22nd via Transgressive Records.
Julia Jacklin has dropped a shiny new single today. 'Head Alone' has been shared along with the announcement of a new album Crushing, due to be released February 22nd, via Transgressive Records. Taken from her forthcoming Burke Reid produced album 'Head Alone' builds into quite a pacey crescendo of guitar duelling and competing vocal harmonies.
Speaking of the song, Jacklin explains "I wrote most of 'Head Alone' on tour, singing it to myself, looking out the window on endless car journeys. It's not a song that comes from a singular experience. It came from two years of feeling like the space around me shrinking to the point where I couldn't even raise my arms. This song is me raising my arms and running into an open field. A bit of a plea to those around me to give me space and a song to remind myself that it's okay to enforce boundaries, the good people in your life will listen, adapt and still love you."
Jacklin has also announced further live dates for March 2019, check out the new tour dates and listen to 'Head Alone' below.
