Listen Ethel Cain shares new single ‘American Teenager’

Her debut album lands next month.

Ahead of the release of her debut album ‘Preacher’s Daughter’ on 12th May, Ethel Cain is sharing the final single ‘American Teenager’.

“Growing up I was surrounded by visions of Nascar, rock’n’roll, and being the one who would change everything,” Ethel explains. “They make you think it’s all achievable and that if nothing else, you should at least die trying. What they don’t tell you is that you need your neighbor more than your country needs you. I wrote this song as an expression of my frustration with all the things the ‘American Teenager’ is supposed to be but never had any real chance of becoming.”
