Emmy The Great unveils new single 'A Window/O'Keeffe'

With her highly-anticipated new album due out near the beginning of next month, Emmy The Great has now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'A Window/O'Keeffe' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Mary' and 'Dandelions/Liminal' in previewing her new LP 'April / 月音', which is out on the 9th October via Bella Union.

Speaking about the new offering, she said, "'A Window/ O'Keeffe' was written about my last summer living in Brooklyn. I’d just travelled to China for the first time and had a moment in a temple, and the entire summer I would only wear ‘lucky’ colours - royal yellow, dusty orange, or the red that scares away ghosts. It was a summer of bright sun and dizzying freedom, the kind that only happens when your life is about to change. The city was a film set of burst fire hydrants and music playing constantly from open windows.

"On the grass outside my apartment, people documented their lives on their phones, and I walked through their videos on my way to meet friends. The world was shifting, and maybe we didn't always like where it was going, but it was summer now, and we were together. When I finished the song in Hong Kong that October, the colours of an O'Keeffe exhibit I'd been to see at the Brooklyn museum had seeped into my memories of that time. In many ways, this song is about colour, though it's also about the friendship between women, something I leaned on as I moved into the next phase of my life."
