Ethel Cain has dropped a new single, ‘American Teenager’.
The track is the final taster of forthcoming album ‘Preacher’s Daughter’, set for release on 12th May. It follows up on previous singles ‘Gibson Girl’ and ‘Strangers’.
“Growing up I was surrounded by visions of Nascar, rock’n’roll, and being the one who would change everything,” Cain shares. “They make you think it’s all achievable and that if nothing else, you should at least die trying. What they don’t tell you is that you need your neighbor more than your country needs you. I wrote this song as an expression of my frustration with all the things the ‘American Teenager’ is supposed to be but never had any real chance of becoming.”
