Julia Jacklin made a double-whammy announcement overnight, exciting fans with news of a second album release date and national tour for next year.
The indie singer’s follow-up to Don’t Let The Kids Win, titled Crushing, is set for release on Friday, 22nd February next year.
We’ve also received the second sneak peek of the new stuff to come from Jacklin, with the song ‘Head Alone’ released today as well.
On the new track, Julia says, “I wrote most of ‘Head Alone’ out on tour, and it was one of the songs I kept coming back to over a few months. It took me a while to figure out what I was trying to say, but it’s just a plea to those around to give me space.
“How if you don’t carve out space for yourself, physically and emotionally, no one’s going to do it for you. I was also just pretty sick of being touched.
“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.”
Crushing will be taken around the country in March next year, with support sets from the likes of Olympia, Annie Hamilton, Asha Jeffries and Robert Muinos — full tour details below.
