On Thursday (Sept 6th), Julia Holter announced her new release “Aviary”, an album she describes as “an epic journey through the cacophony of the mind in a melting world.” The follow up to 2015’s Have You in My Wilderness will be released Oct 26th on Domino Recordings and is her fifth release.

“Amidst all the internal and external babble we experience daily, it’s hard to find one’s foundation,” says Holter. “I think this album (Aviary) is reflecting that feeling of cacophony and how one responds to it as a person – how one behaves, how one looks for love, for solace.  Maybe it’s a matter of listening to and gathering the seeming madness, of forming something out of it and envisioning a future.”

Her first single and video from the new album, the Lonely Hearts Club influenced “I Shall Love 2” demonstrates this.  “In a lot of the songs, when I mention love, it’s about a seeking for compassion and humility in a world where it feels like empathy is always being tested,” Holter says.

Here’s the first video from the upcoming album.
