Hayley Mary‘s solo career has been going from strength to strength, and now she’s already giving us news of her second EP, The Drip.
This EP from The Jezabels frontwoman is due out on Friday, 18th June – just over a year since the January 2020 release of her debut EP The Piss, The Perfume.
In addition, she’s also given us the EP’s third single ‘Young & Stupid’. In a press statement, she explained the song was born from visiting the family home of her partner – DMA’S member Johnny Took – and hearing their landline phone ring.
“I hadn’t realised they even had a landline. It was like a ghost calling through the hallway with that old school ring. ‘Who the hell even calls you on that?’ I asked. ‘Only Nana,’ my partner replied.
“As it was in the middle of the worst part of covid, there was a certain vibe around; of everything that had been taken for granted; of the preciousness of life and the fragility of the old, mixed with a pronounced concern with where technology was going to take us.”
“We reflected on the probability that when the last landlines in the world stopped ringing,” she continued, “it would only be because a certain generation was gone.”
The release of ‘Young & Stupid’ follows on from the release of previous singles ‘The Chain’ and ‘Would You Throw A Diamond?’
The Drip is out Friday, 18th June.
