Squirrel Flower - aka Ella Williams - has today shared that she’ll be putting out her fifth album, ‘Tomorrow’s Fire’, on 13th October via Polyvinyl / Full Time Hobby. It’s a follow up to 2021’s ‘Planet (I)’, and the news is complemented by the release of two new singles, ‘Full Time Job’ and ‘When A Plant Is Dying’.

Clocking in at only two minutes, ‘Full Time Job’ is a driving number packed with walls of shoegazing guitars that are grounded by Ella’s distinctive, understated delivery. ‘When A Plant Is Dying’, meanwhile, is a more delicate cut, foregrounding her haunting vocals until the instruments descend into a prolonged, frustrated riff breakdown.

Produced by Ella herself (the first Squirrel Flower album to have her take the production reins), ‘Tomorrow’s Fire’ was recorded in North Carolina with a studio band that featured Matt McCaughan (Bon Iver), Seth Kauffman (Angel Olsen band), Jake Lenderman (MJ Lenderman, Wednesday), and Dave Hartley (The War on Drugs).
