Julia Holter announces new album ‘Aviary’; shares first track ‘I Shall Love 2’

She’s also announced a string of autumn tour dates.

Julia Holter has confirmed she’ll be releasing a new album ‘Aviary’ and shared the first track ‘I Shall Love 2’. 

The follow-up to her 2015 record, ‘Have You in My Wilderness’, the Los Angeles composer’s new album is due for release on 26th October via Domino. 

Speaking about the new album, Julia says: “Amidst all the internal and external babble we experience daily, it’s hard to find one’s foundation. I think this album is reflecting that feeling of cacophony and how one responds to it as a person - how one behaves, how one looks for love, for solace.  Maybe it’s a matter of listening to and gathering the seeming madness, of forming something out of it and envisioning a future.” 

New track ‘I Shall Love 2’ also comes with a video directed by Dicky Bahto, which you can see below.
