Crushing

A word with multiple meanings, all of which are incredibly relevant on this here strange holiday we find ourselves. Today Julia Jacklin shares a sneak peek of her new album in full via an NPR exclusive First Listen ahead of next week's release. Crushing is a record formed from sheer intensity of feeling, an in-the-moment narrative of heartbreak and infatuation. From NPR –

"Crushing is filled with moments of brutal honesty, confusion, relief, resiliency and regret — all of which double as a source of comfort to the songwriter."

Additionally, we get another timely look at Julia's latest masterpiece via a new music video for "Comfort". Filmed with long time collaborator Nick McKinlay while on tour in the US recently Julia reports, "Happy Valentine's Day! On tour with First Aid Kit last year I crossed the highway from our Super 8 motel just outside of Santa Rosa, New Mexico and stumbled upon this strange water park. I ran back and dragged Nick out of his bed yelling, "we must make a video!" we only had an hour before we needed to start driving to the next show but we managed to get enough footage of me looking sad to make the clip.”

A highly limited amount of Crushing Early Birds remain available in the Polyvinyl Store. Get your first pressing on 180-Gram Orange vinyl now. Crushing will be available worldwide February 22, 2019.

Jacklin was recently back in the US where she stopped by the Paste Studios to perform songs from the new album, as well as visits to WFUV, WFMU, and World Cafe in Philadelphia. She will be returning to US shores this spring in support of Crushing, tour dates are selling fast, so snag a ticket for yourself, for your sweetheart, or for your arch enemy, but do it fast.
