Julia Jacklin releases new tracks "to Perth, before the border closes" and "CRY"

Julia Jacklin has returned with new tracks "to Perth, before the border closes" and "CRY" today (12 October), released as part of the Sub Pop Singles Club.

Jacklin teased the release of the new songs last week, and has today shared both tracks as part of the Sub Pop Singles Club.

The new tracks are Jacklin's first outings since last year's Crushing album.

Speaking about "to Perth, before the border closes", Jacklin says, "I’ve moved around a lot the last five years; chasing things, love, work, something new, whatever and there’s always this fear that I’m leaving good things behind just to go somewhere else and be lonely. Whispering “everything changes” to myself helps get me to sleep at night. I started writing this song in Melbourne and finished it in Perth. It was like a little song bridge between the two cities to make the change easier."

The b-side "CRY" is inspired by Dolly Parton.

Both tracks were recorded with her band made up of Jennifer Aslett, Christ Wright and Jacob Diamond, and with help from Perth producer Ryan Brennan.

Julia Jacklin's "to Perth, before the border closes" and "CRY" are both our now. Visit subpop.com to subscribe to the Singles Club.
