Waxahatchee has announced her brand new album, 'Saint Cloud'

Waxahatchee has announced her brand new album.

Titled 'Saint Cloud', Katie Crutchfield - for it is she, etc - has also debuted the video for the lead song from the record, 'Fire'.

Speaking about the track, she explains: "The idea and melody for 'Fire' was dreamt up while driving over the Mississippi River from Memphis into West Memphis, AR, sun reflecting off the water which literally made West Memphis glow. The song's written by me, to myself. It's about the internal dialogue of shame surrounding mistakes you've made in the past and how we spiral and beat ourselves up when we slip. It's meant to be a bit of a personal pep talk. If I can love myself unconditionally, then I can move through the world a little easier. If I can accept that I only have a partial view of the universe, and that I can't know everything or control much of anything, then I can breathe a little easier, take better care of myself, and be closer to my own truth."

So there we go.

'Saint Cloud', a press release explains, was written immediately in the period following a decision to get sober. "I think all of my records are turbulent and emotional," Katie muses, "but this one feels like it has a little dose of enlightenment. It feels a little more calm and less reckless."

'Saint Cloud' is set for release on 27th March. You can check out 'Fire' below.
