Lola Kirke has released a new track, ‘Broken Families’.
The song is the second taster of her forthcoming album ‘Lady For Sale’, following up on lead single ‘Better Than Any Drug’ which arrived last month.
Speaking about the track, she explains: “For years, I’ve tried to understand why, as a girl from New York City, I connect most with country music. Maybe I’m just a giant poser or maybe it’s the singular way Country can express the most complex and difficult feelings, with wit and grit to boot. It all started for me as a teenager, listening to Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn. Over time, my taste has grown to include more recent artists like Martina McBride and Miranda Lambert to name just a couple. When Courtney and I sat down to write, we challenged ourselves to write a song we could hear on country radio. Which is fucking hard by the way! I’m not entirely sure we achieved that, but I do think the result is a unique hybrid of our more idiosyncratic sensibilities and the music I admire so much. Whatever the case, it’s an honest love song about not wanting to repeat the cycles that probably made you fall in love with each other in the first place. It’s about wanting to change and stay the same, being hopeful when you’re feeling hopeless. If that’s not Country, I don’t know what is.”
‘Lady For Sale’ is set for release on 29th April via Third Man Records.
