Lifted from their upcoming new album ‘Here Is Everything’.

Ahead of the release of their third album ‘Here Is Everything’ this Friday, 14th October, via Fiction Records, The Big Moon are sharing the final single ‘Daydreaming’.

“This is a weird one for me,” Juliette Jackson says. “I always thought this song was about breastfeeding but it’s so happy - and honestly my experience of breastfeeding was awful and one of the hardest times of my life. The breastfeeding I’m singing about in this song is the happiest, lightest, wooziest, cuddliest version of it. Looking back, maybe I was just yearning for that. Being unable to breastfeed felt like failure, like something had been taken away from me. I must’ve just wanted to imagine it had all gone a different way. It was a long time before I was able to be honest with myself about so much of the pain of the early days of motherhood. That’s the power of pop music isn’t it - you can be whoever you want to be. It’s happy and sad all at the same time.”
