Double trouble: Hazel English announces new double EP ‘Just Give In/ Never Going Home’

Hazel English announces new double EP ‘Just Give In/ Never Going Home’

The Oakland singer-songwriter has also shared a video for new single ‘Fix.’

After releasing her EP ‘Never Going Home’ last year, Oakland-via-Australia indie singer-songwriter Hazel English has announced plans to release an expanded double EP.

‘Just Give In/ Never Going Home’ is out on 12th May through Marathon Artists, and will see the original tracks from the 2016 release combined with brand new tracks. The result is essentially Hazel’s debut album release, and will no doubt be chock full of the kind of bittersweet magic we’ve come to know her for.

To give a bit of a taste of what to expect, she’s also shared a brand new video for ‘Fix,’ shot around the backstreets, parks and overpasses around Echo Park and Silver Lake in Los Angeles. Inspired by cult films such as ‘The Virgin Suicides,’ it’s actually kind of sweet as Hazel and a young man spend some time together, eating ice cream, playing on hills and travelling around Chinatown at night. Aww.
