She’s sharing first single ‘Lydia Wears A Cross’ today.

Set for release on 26th August via Transgressive Records, Julia Jacklin has announced her third album ‘Pre Pleasure’.

“A lot of the time I feel like I need to do all the work before I can enjoy my life,” she says of the LP. “Whether that’s work on songs or sex, friendships, or my relationship with my family – I think if I work on them long and hard enough, eventually I’ll get to sit around and really enjoy them. But that’s not how anything works is it. It’s all an ongoing process.”

Revealing first single ‘Lydia Wears A Cross’ alongside the news, Julia says, “The song is about a lot of things but mainly being a 7yr old Jesus Christ superstar fanatic attending catholic school trying to figure out which way is up. The music video was filmed by my constant collaborator and friend Nick Mckk at Splitpoint lighthouse. I played a show close by recently and asked on stage if anyone could let me film inside. Someone in the crowd knew a guy and that was it. The rest was filmed in the streets of Northcote, Melbourne.”
