Natalie Prass says her new track "was my warrior cry when I was losing hope"

Natalie Prass has unveiled "Sisters", the superb second single from upcoming sophomore LP The Future And The Past.

"This song was written right after 45 was elected," Prass says of the track. "I was raised in an environment where 'women can’t do this or that'. It was around me in my personal life, but was also deeply built in the culture around me. It resulted in me thinking (sadly up until recently) to be a girl meant to be weak. I was rebellious and confused on what being a woman meant for me in life. A lot of women can’t relate to my situation, and I commend you, but I know a lot of women and girls out there can relate to my story. I now know more than ever that women are a force to be reckoned with, and we can change this world for the better."

"I desperately needed an anthem after 6 November 2016," Prass continues. "All of my past ghosts that I thought I had overcome came back to haunt me and I was paralyzed for months. This song was my warrior cry when I was losing hope. We demand equality for all marginalized groups, we demand safety in our neighborhoods, we demand safe health care and proper family leave, we demand better public schools for all classes, we demand equal pay and safety in our place of work. There are solutions to these issues and we need to stick together to solve them. When one ship rises, we all rise. Keep your sisters close. WE ARE WORLD WIDE WORLD CLASS."

Prass is following up her immense self-titled debut, which landed in 2015. She's been pretty busy in the time since its release, sharing a covers EP(including versions of Grimes and Simon and Garfunkel tracks), tackling Slayer, performing at the Spacebomb Revue, unveiling a Christmas number, and popping into the studio with Jessie Ware and Matthew E. White.

Prass has also announced a new UK tour for April, with shows in London, Brighton, Manchester, Birmingham, and Glasgow confirmed. Find out the full details.
