With her third album ‘Pre Pleasure’ set for release on 26th August via Transgressive Records, Julia Jacklin has shared her latest single ‘I Was Neon’.
“I first wrote ‘I Was Neon’ for a band called rattlesnack, a short-lived much loved 2019 side project that I played drums in,” Julia explains. “I rewrote it for my album in Montreal, during a time when I was desperately longing for a version of myself that I feared was gone forever. I was thinking of this song when I made the album cover, this song is the album cover really.”
“A lot of the time I feel like I need to do all the work before I can enjoy my life,” she adds 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.”
Check out ‘I Was Neon’ below.
