Some good news, with the return of Julia Jacklin to our world! She has just announced a triple spectacular of gig, album and single, as is often the norm in such cases. The only downside is that she’s made the leap to play in Vicar Street, as I was really hoping to see her in a small venue (like Whelans) for another few years. Fear not, as it only means that the word of her great music has spread! You can hear her new single – LYDIA WEARS A CROSS below, and set a reminder in your calendar for the 3rd of November.
@ Vicar Street – Thu Nov 03 2022 at 08:30 pm – ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM – PRE PLEASURE – OUT AUGUST 26th VIA TRANSGRESSIVE
Today, Australian singer/songwriter Julia Jacklin announces her highly anticipated new album PRE PLEASURE set for release on August 26, 2022 via Transgressive. The album is a masterclass in songwriting and cements Jacklin’s status as one of the most important songwriters of her time.
‘Lydia Wears A Cross’ is the first single from the new album and Jacklin has today released the new video as well. On the song Julia says “The song is about a lot of things but mainly being a 7yr old Jesus Christ superstar fanatic attending catholic school trying to figure out which way is up. The music video was filmed by my constant collaborator and friend Nick Mckk at Splitpoint lighthouse. I played a show close by recently and asked on stage if anyone could let me film inside. Someone in the crowd knew a guy and that was it. The rest was filmed in the streets of Northcote, Melbourne.”
“A lot of the time I feel like I need to do all the work before I can enjoy my life,” says Julia Jacklin of her third album, PRE PLEASURE. “Whether that’s work on songs or sex, friendships, or my relationship with my family – I think if I work on them long and hard enough, eventually I’ll get to sit around and really enjoy them. But that’s not how anything works is it. It’s all an ongoing process.”
