Konzert: Julien Baker
Memphis, TN-based songwriter Julien Baker is the latest addition to the renowned Matador Records roster. The 21-year-old’s devastating and vulnerable debut album, Sprained Ankle, which was released in 2015, is available now digitally, with a physical re-release dropping worldwide on March 17th (ex-US and Australia). Today fans can hear a previously unreleased song “Funeral Pyre,” which is the title-track and A-side for Baker’s new 7” also coming out on March 17thon Matador. Only Baker can make a song with such a darkly macabre title so heartbreakingly gorgeous, with her signature hushed-yet-lofty vocals soaring over a quietly fingerpicked melody that crescendos into layered, almost-orchestral beauty. The B-side, “Distant Solar System,” is another unheard song from the Sprained Ankle sessions that will be available digitally and physically on release day. After extensive touring in 2015 and 2016, selling out major US markets, Baker shows no signs of slowing down in 2017. Midwestern US audiences can catch her on a short run of dates this winter, which are followed by a lengthy European tour in the spring.
