"last july" is SOAK's first new material since 2020's "I’m Alive" with Saint Sister’s Gemma Doherty, and arrives with a Ellius Grace-directed video.

The new single is accompanied by news of SOAK's third album If I Never Know You Like This Again, which was written during the pandemic.

According to Monds-Watson, their new album is made up of "song-memories". They add, "This record is the most accurate picture of me. I felt no pressure at all, it was almost like I was ranting as I was writing. When I was looking to the past, it was as though I had a big lottery ball of all my recent memories and I would just randomly select which one I wanted to unpack. It helped me to process my past."

If I Never Know You Like This Again will follow SOAK's 2019 album Grim Town.
