Yesterday (16 August) on Instagram, Jolie Holland shared an update on the new song she's releasing via her Patreon account today (17 August).

The musician wrote, "Every Monday I release a new song at Patreon.com/JolieHolland, whether it’s a cover, an original or a new version of one of my songs. This week, I’m sharing a recording from my notes, elements of a musical I’m writing. Lord knows when musicals will happen in this country again. For now, we have Patreon."

She continued, "Jarvis Cocker expressed interest in being the male lead, which is very exciting. As I continue to write these songs, I am imagining a part for Patty Smith. Hopefully soon my Patreon will be robust enough that I can afford to go back to working on the songs! The musical overall is an adaptation of a dystopian/fantasy novel from the 1960s."
