Put 27th March in your calendars, kids, because Waxahatchee has just announced her brand new album, ‘Saint Cloud’. And that’s not it!
She’s also sharing new track ‘Fire’ to get us all excited about what we can expect. “The idea and melody for ‘Fire’ was dreamt up while driving over the Mississippi River from Memphis into West Memphis, AR, sun reflecting off the water which literally made West Memphis glow,” Waxahatchee explains. “The song’s written by me, to myself. It’s about the internal dialogue of shame surrounding mistakes you’ve made in the past and how we spiral and beat ourselves up when we slip. It’s meant to be a bit of a personal pep talk. If I can love myself unconditionally, then I can move through the world a little easier. If I can accept that I only have a partial view of the universe, and that I can’t know everything or control much of anything, then I can breathe a little easier, take better care of myself, and be closer to my own truth.”
Have a look at the full track list below.
‘Saint Cloud’ Tracklisting:
2. Can’t Do Much

It’s the third preview of debut album ‘Makes Me Sick Makes Me Smile’, due this month.
It comes alongside the news that they’ve signed to Dead Oceans.
The trio’s last album came in 2017 with ‘After Laughter’.
The “dance banger” track, which appears on imminent new album ‘Hold The Girl’, is described as a “turning point” in the record.
