Methyl Ethel has announced a new album, ‘Are You Haunted?’ – and is previewing it with a new song.
Single ‘Proof’ also features fellow Australian star Stella Donnelly, and follows on from last year’s ‘Matters’ and ‘Neon Cheap’.
Speaking about the team-up, Jake Webb explains: “Stella is one of the most truth-telling artists I’ve ever heard. It made for a perfect match.”
Donnelly adds: “Working on “Proof” with Jake felt like being invited to the set of your favourite movie, such an insightful and wonderful experience.”
Speaking about the album title, Webb reveals: “There are these spirits, memories of our old selves, our younger selves, parents, generations past whose deeds, actions, successes and failures shape us. We all have these ghosts that linger in our present predicaments.”
“A dear friend of mine recently passed away, the studio is his. I spent many years of experimentation with him, learning so much looking over his shoulder. It feels special to continue to share the space with his ghost, I’m still learning from him.”
‘Are You Haunted?’ is set for release via Future Classic on 18th February. You can check out ‘Proof’ below.
