The Big Moon deliver new single "Trouble"

The Big Moon have shared new cut "Trouble" as the second taster of their forthcoming album Here Is Everything.

"Trouble" lands with a Red Tubby-directed video, and will appear on The Big Moon's Here Is Everything album with the July lead single "Wide Eyes".

Juliette Jackson says of the new outing, ""Trouble" is about remembering walking over the railway bridge to the hospital to give birth. This is a bridge I cross every day, but somehow in my memory on that day it’s like a bridge over a canyon in a technicolour Wizard of Oz jungle landscape. Like giant leaves and blurry edges and oversaturated colours. But it’s just a pissy graffiti-covered South London pedestrian bridge. And it’s about learning that memories aren’t always right, and you don’t have to hang on to them and be traumatised by them forever."

"I’ve since realised that this song has been more than a song to me, it’s been healing," Jackson adds. "Birth is traumatic, however you do it, and for me the early months of motherhood were even more traumatising. No one tells you how difficult breastfeeding is! It’s almost like, by making that experience sound like joy and then playing it again and again with my best friends, I've found a way of reframing my memory of that period. You can forget, you can remember it differently, you can heal, you can live."

Here Is Everything is mostly self-produced, but also saw them work with CECIL (Self Esteem, Jehnny Beth, PJ Harvey) and Grammy Award-winning producer Ben Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Deer Hunter). It'll follow The Big Moon's 2020 second album Walking Like We Do.

"Trouble" is out now. The Big Moon's Here Is Everything album will arrive 14 October via Fiction Records, and is available to pre-order now. They'll play a sold out show at London's O2 Forum Kentish Town on 28 September. Visit for the full list of live dates.
