Julien Baker – ‘Sprained Ankle’ re-release, “Funeral Pyre” 7″, 2017 Touring

We’re very thrilled to announce the signing of Memphis, TN-based songwriter Julien Baker. The 21-year-old’s widelyacclaimed 2015 debut album, ‘Sprained Ankle’ (originally released by 6131) is available now digitally, with Matador’s LP and CD reissue available in all territories (save for North America and Australia) on March 17. We’ll be releasing Julien’s next studio album everywhere.

Funeralpack

(7″ sleeve photo by Kaitlin Gladney)

As premiered earlier this morning via NPR’s “All Songs Considered”, you can hear the previously unreleased “Funeral Pyre”, the A-side for Baker’s new 7”, out on March 17th on Matador*. Only Baker can make a song with such a darkly macabre title so heartbreakingly gorgeous, with her signature hushed-yet-lofty vocals soaring over a quietly finger-picked melody that crescendos into layered, almost-orchestral beauty. The B-side, “Distant Solar System,” is another unheard song from the ‘Sprained Ankle’ sessions.

(* – said 7″ will be included in the international editions of the ‘Sprained Ankle’ LP ; however, the single will be available for stand-alone purchase in North America).

(STREAM / PREORDER ‘Sprained Ankle’)

After extensive touring in 2015 and 2016, Baker shows no signs of slowing down in 2017. Midwestern US audiences can catch her on a short run of dates this winter, which are followed by a lengthy European tour in the spring. The full list of tour dates can be found below :

ABRA will be heading back to UK & Europe (including Pitchfork Paris) in October on the heels of the release of her new EP entitled PRINCESS. If you have not been enjoying it in full these last few minutes of summer, then what have you been doing?

In light of this announcement, Brainfeeder producer IGLOOGHOST has remixed “CRYBABY” for your listening pleasure. Quote from said producer below:

“THE ORIGINAL CRYBABY WAS PACKED FULL OF SOOO MANY MOMENTS THAT WERE SO NUTS TO ME SO I WAS RLLY EXCITED TO TRY & DO MY OWN LIL SPIN ON IT. MY REGULAR SOLO IGLOOGHOST STUFF IS USUALLY SUPER SATURATED & I GUESS THERE’S AN EMPHASIS ON FITTING AS MANY SOUNDS IN AS I CAN – BUT FOR THIS ABRA THINGY I RLLY WANTED TO DO SOMETHING REALLY RESTRAINED & MORE BASED ON SPEEDY LIL RECURRING SIMPLE MELODIES/MOTIFS. IN MY HEAD, IT SOUNDS LIKE A LITTLE WATER SPIRIT GIRL CRYING IN A ZEN GARDEN. ಢ︵ಢ”

THUMP premiered the remix and had said it added “futurist sheen” to the track. Stream here: http://smarturl.it/ABRA_Crybaby
