It’s set for release in June.

Squirrel Flower - aka singer-songwriter Ella Williams - has announced details of a new album.

‘Planet (i)’ will be released on 25th June, and features single also revealed today, ‘Hurt A Fly’.

“‘Hurt A Fly’ is me embodying a persona of gaslighting, narcissistic soft-boy type shit,” Ella says. “The classic ‘sorry I acted violently, I’m not mad that you got upset at me, wanna hang out next week?’. I wanted to see what it was like to be a character trying to skirt around accountability. It’s an angry and unhinged song, and for the video I wanted to be inside a bubble writhing around and trying to get out. A stranger filmed me practicing choreography at a public park, submitted it to a meme page making fun of ‘influencers,’ and the video got 1,000,000 views, which in my mind is perfect thematically.”
