It’s finally time! The Japanese House – that’s Amber Bain to her mates – has announced the release details of her debut album, due to arrive next year.
Titled ‘Good at Falling’, the full-length will be released via Dirty Hit on 1st March 2019. Produced by Amber, BJ Burton (Low, Bon Iver, Francis and the Lights), and a bloke called ‘George Daniel‘ (he’s from some band called ‘The 1975‘ – us neither), it follows up on her four previous EPs and includes the previously revealed lead single ‘Lilo’, which debuted last month.
It also includes another new track, ‘Follow My Girl’, which aired earlier today on Beats 1. You can check that out below.
A press release describes how ‘Good at Falling’ “began as demos recorded by Bain on her laptop in her room in London, and was finished in studios across Wisconsin, Brussels and Oxford, by Bain, BJ Burton and George Daniel.”
“These songs are definitely more direct,” Amber explains. “The album has a lot more of me in it, so it makes sense.”
The tracklisting for ‘Good at Falling’ reads:

Maybe You’re the Reason
We Talk all the Time
You Seemed so Happy
Follow My Girl
Everybody Hates Me
