Emmy The Great delivers new single 'Mary'

With her highly-anticipated new album set to drop in the coming months, Emmy The Great has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Mary' follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Dandelions/Liminal' in previewing her new LP 'April / 月音', which is set to arrive on the 9th October via Bella Union.

Speaking about her new offering, she said, "'Mary' is named for a Hong Kong fortune teller I met in Kowloon, who gave me the wrong fortune when I mixed up my Cantonese words. It was written in 2017, when I wandered Hong Kong’s neon-lit streets looking to explore my relationship with the city of my birth, unaware that this was the last moment of calm before the city changed beyond recognition with the protests that began in the summer of 2019. Maybe that’s why the song is about a fortune teller who can’t tell the future. The song was later recorded in Brooklyn, with Jo Lampert, my friend and an astonishing singer who played the lead in David Byrne’s Joan of Arc, as Mary."
