Tomberlin has shared the details for the release of her second album, ‘i don’t know who needs to hear this…’.
The news comes alongside a brand new track from the record, happy accident’, which follows up on last month’s single ‘idkwntht’.
Speaking about the track, which features Cass McCombs on guitar, Tomberlin explains: “‘happy accident’ is a song about relational obscurity. Trying to sort out who you are or who you were to someone. Is this relationship romantic or is it just sex? Do you want to spend time with me or are you just bored? Do I make my own decisions that are good for me or are my decisions predominantly based on what I think you might want or need? I was kind of walking through moments in previous relationships in my life. I wanna know why someone wants to get to know me. Do you want to know me or just your idea of me? Do I want to know you or just my idea of you?”
Recorded at Brooklyn’s Figure 8 studios over the course of two weeks, ‘i don’t know who needs to hear this…’ is set for release on 29th April via Saddle Creek.
“My first record, I made it without knowing I was making it,” Tomberlin reveals. “I was writing songs to process stuff from my personal life as it was happening, and then suddenly everything was happening really fast. Record label, tour, press, all this momentum and a lot of advice about my career, which, you know, I never even expected to have. So I think when I started to write the second record, I felt a lot of pressure to make it sound collected and profound, almost like a book – chapters, a narrative, everything nicely wrapped up.”
