After briefly returning in 2018 to deliver her much-loved EP 'Great Thunder', Waxahatchee is back once again to announce the details behind her next studio album.
The new full-length 'Saint Cloud' was recorded between Sonic Ranch in Texas and Long Pond in New York, is being previewed by the new lead single 'Fire', and is due to be released on the 27th March via Merge Records.
Speaking about her new offering, she said, “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. 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.”
