Julia Jacklin has unveiled a third preview of her PRE PLEASURE album today (19 July) titled "Love, Try Not To Let Go".

"Love, Try Not To Let Go" follows previous singles "I Was Neon" and "Lydia Wears A Cross", and is teamed with another video directed by Jacklin and Nick Mckk.

Jacklin says of the new cut, ""Love, Try Not To Let Go" was written one night during the recording period in my apartment in Montreal. It’s the first song I’ve ever written fully on piano. It’s the first time I’ve played piano on a record. I thought someone better would redo the take but we kept it so now I’m officially a pianist. We recorded it the next day. I made everyone watch the running scene from Rocky beforehand."

PRE PLEASURE will follow Jacklin's 2019 album Crushing. It was recorded in Montreal with co-producer Marcus Paquin (The Weather Station, The National) and her band which is made up of bassist Ben Whiteley, guitarist Will Kidman, drummer Laurie Torres and saxophonist Adam Kinner. The album also features string arrangements by Owen Pallett (Arcade Fire), which was recorded by a full orchestra in Prague.

"Love, Try Not To Let Go" is out now. Julia Jacklin's PRE PLEASURE album will arrive via Transgressive Records on 26 August, and is available to pre-order now. She'll play London's Roundhouse on 11 November. Tickets are on sale now via
