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.

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).
