Ahead of the release of her debut album ‘Preacher’s Daughter’ on 12th May via Daughters of Cain, Ethel Cain is sharing her latest single ‘Strangers’.
“This is the second song I wrote for this record, without the intention that it would become the ending,” she explains. “Looking back, I can’t imagine a more perfect resolution to this lineage. I think subconsciously, this song was always the end of the road. It’s the realization that some things cannot be avoided, only accepted, and that just because it isn’t a happy ending, doesn’t mean it’s a bad one. There is an ending in every beginning, and all things come back around in one strange way or another. You can’t change your past, nor anyone else’s, and the only real strength you have in this lifetime is your forgiveness.”
