Stella Donnelly has announced her debut album, 'Beware Of The Dogs'

Stella Donnelly has announced plans for her debut album, set to arrive later this year.

Titled 'Beware Of The Dogs', the full-length will be released on 8th March via Secretly Canadian, and comes alongside a video for its lead single 'Old Man'.

Speaking about the new track, Stella explains: “I came up with the chords and chorus to this song in 2017 around the time when Woody Allen called the #metoo movement a witch hunt. It was a very strange feeling for me watching the world change right before my eyes and to see that these men who had exploited their power for so long were actually being held accountable for their actions. It made me look back on my experiences as a young woman doing music and certain powerful men who tried to manipulate me and exploit other young women.

“I needed to write this song for myself because if I hadn’t I would still feel quite angry about things that I probably let slide in my younger, more naive days. I have no intentions of publicly calling out these people but it’s a nice feeling to me knowing that they may hear this song one day and feel perhaps an inch of the humiliation and powerlessness that they inflicted on me back then.”

Donnelly hits the UK this April and May. You can find dates, and the video for 'Old Man', below.
