Set for release on 8th October via Hardly Art, Lala Lala - aka Chicago-based musician Lillie West - has announced her new album ‘I Want The Door To Open’, and is sharing lead single ‘DIVER’ today to celebrate.
Speaking about the track’s themes, Lillie says, “I want total freedom, total possibility, total acceptance. I want to fall in love with the rock.” With “the rock” inspired by the story of Sisyphus forever pushing up a boulder from the depths of hell, she adds, “I think it’s easy to feel like we keep making the same mistakes over and over again, that we’re Sisyphus. The key is falling in love with the labor of walking up the mountain.”
