Eve Owen has announced her debut album produced by The National's Aaron Dessner, Don’t Let The Ink Dry, as well as unveiling the lead single "So Still For You".

"So Still For You" arrives after last year's "She Says", which will also feature on Owen's forthcoming record.

Owen says of her new single, which arrives with a video directed by her sister Hannah Owen, ""So Still For You" is about how fleeting love can be, but how permanent words are. By sharing my love in a song, it lasts forever."

Don't Let The Ink Dry is produced by The National's Aaron Dessner at Long Pond Studio.

Speaking about the recording process, Owen explains, "What I enjoyed most was that there were no rules. I could say or do whatever I wanted without feeling judged, which is the most wonderful feeling when you’re working creatively with someone."

Dessner adds, "We ultimately recorded more than 40 songs over three years, and this first album feels like a collection of them. I enjoyed the process immensely. We felt free to imagine and chase whatever sounds or arrangements inspired us. In the middle of that time, she helped me make a National song called "Where Is Her Head", which she fearlessly sang lead on. There’s so much Eve is capable of and I’m grateful to know her."
