Julia Jacklin has shared a new single, ‘I Was Neon’.
The song is taken from her third album, ‘Pre Pleasure’, which is set to arrive on 26th August via Transgressive Records.
“I first wrote ‘I Was Neon’ for a band called rattlesnack, a short-lived much loved 2019 side project that I played drums in,” Julia reveals. “I rewrote it for my album in Montreal, during a time when I was desperately longing for a version of myself that I feared was gone forever. I was thinking of this song when I made the album cover, this song is the album cover really.”
“A lot of the time I feel like I need to do all the work before I can enjoy my life,” she adds of the LP. “Whether that’s work on songs or sex, friendships, or my relationship with my family – I think if I work on them long and hard enough, eventually I’ll get to sit around and really enjoy them. But that’s not how anything works is it? It’s all an ongoing process.”
