Julianna Barwick details new LP Will, shares lead single "Nebula"

Experimental artist Julianna Barwick has announced her new LP Will, and shared lead single "Nebula".

Barwick's upcoming record was conceived while in a state of flux, and partly worked on during stops in upstate New York, at Moog Factory in North Carolina, and in Lisbon, Portugal. “I love touring, but it can be a wild ride..." Barwick says of the process. "You’re constantly adjusting, assimilating, and finding yourself in life-changing situations."

Continuing about the compositions on Will, Barwick adds: "I knew I’d be playing these songs live, so I wanted some movement - something that had rhythm and low-end... while making this record, there were moments of isolation and dark currents. I like exploring that, and I love when I come across songs that sound scary or ominous. I’ve always been curious about what goes into making a song that way."

Lead single "Nebula" is accompanied by a video directed by Derrick Belcham and filmed in the Philip Johnson Glass House.

Will is out 6 May via Dead Oceans. It follows 2013 LP Nepenthe. Guests contributions on Will come from Thomas Arsenault (Mas Ysa), Dutch cellist Maarten Vos, and percussionist Jamie Ingalls (Chairlift, Tanlines, Beverly).

A pre-order bonus bundle, containing a limited edition 7", is available via
