Julia Jacklin to release new album ‘Crushing’ next February

Listen to new single ‘Head Alone’.

After teaming up with pals in Phantastic Ferniture this year, Aussie singer-songwriter Julia Jacklin is to release a new solo album in early 2019. 

‘Crushing’ will be released on 22nd February, produced by Burke Reid, and features the already-revealed ‘Body’. It’s the follow-up to 2016 debut ‘Don’t Let The Kids Win’.

“I really like this album,” Julia says. “I worked hard on it and I really like listening to it. That’s not usually how I feel after making something. I’ve finally come to accept that right now for me, making records is about capturing a time; who I am at that time, what I need to say in the best way I can say it, with minimal studio frills to cover it up. So I’m really happy to announce this one and ready for whatever things get thrown my way because of it. The cover was hard to figure out, seemed like I couldn’t think of what kind of image would represent the music in the right way. Hard deadlines always make me more creative surprisingly. I was on tour in the states with my best bud Nick Mckk who takes a lot of my photos, he took my first album cover. We pulled off the highway in Pennsylvania and found a town called Krumsville. There was an antique store with a very friendly owner who let us run free inside. I got the jumper made the day before in NYC, same day I decided on the album name. I think it works.”

The track listing for ‘Crushing’ is:

1. Body
2. Head Alone
3. Pressure To Party
4. Don’t Know How To Keep Loving You
5. When The Family Flies In
