Waxahatchee has released another new track, 'Lilacs'

Waxahatchee has released another new track, 'Lilacs'.

It's the second to come from her forthcoming album 'Saint Cloud', following on the previously debuted 'Fire'.

Speaking about the song, she explains: "'Lilacs' was the last song I wrote for the record and it's mostly just about obsessive/negative thought patterns. It's about backsliding into old behaviours that don't serve you and sort of letting your worst self get the best of you.

"I think that when people are in that mindset they can really try to turn the blame onto other people, so the song sort of plays out like a conflict you'd have with someone you love. It's meant to capture that moment of heat that happens right when you realise you're wrong or that your issue is more with yourself than with someone else - being flawed and fragile but making progress inch by inch.

"The chorus serves as a sweet little resolve. I wanted it to feel like the light at the end of the tunnel and the reminder that it can always and often does get better."

So there we go.

'Saint Cloud' is set for release on 27th March. She'll hit the UK this June for shows in Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and London. The dates read:

June
24 Bristol, The Fleece
25 Birmingham, Hare and Hounds
26 Manchester, Yes (The Pink Room)
27 London, Islington Assembly Hall
