Julia Jacklin announces new LP ‘PRE PLEASURE’ & 2022 tour (listen to “Lydia Wears A Cross”)

Julia Jacklin will release new album PRE PLEASURE on August 26 via Polyvinyl. She made the album in Montreal with co-producer Marcus Paquin (The Weather Station, The National), and a backing band of The Weather Station‘s Ben Whiteley and Will Kidman, plus drummer drummer Laurie Torres and saxophonist Adam Kinner. Owen Pallett did the string arrangements.

“Making a record to me has always just been about the experience, a new experience in a new place with a new person at the desk, taking the plunge and just seeing what happens” says Jacklin. “For the first time I stepped away from the guitar, and wrote a lot of the album on the Roland keyboard in my apartment in Montreal with its inbuilt band tracks. I blu-tacked reams of butcher paper to the walls, covered in lyrics and ideas, praying to the music gods that my brain would arrange everything in time.”

The first single from the album is cinematic “Lydia Wears A Cross” which takes its time building to a head of steam. “The song is about a lot of things but mainly being a 7yr old Jesus Christ superstar fanatic attending catholic school trying to figure out which way is up. The music video was filmed by my constant collaborator and friend Nick Mckk at Splitpoint lighthouse. I played a show close by recently and asked on stage if anyone could let me film inside. Someone in the crowd knew a guy and that was it. The rest was filmed in the streets of Northcote, Melbourne.” Watch the video below.

Julia will be on tour starting in late August with the Stanford, CA stop on Courtney Barnett’s Here There Festival and then Pasadena’s This Ain’t No Picnic before heading out with Kara Jackson for East Coast shows and Katy Kirby for the rest of North America. The NYC stop is at Brooklyn Steel on September 16.

Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, May 13 at 10 AM, and all dates are listed below.

Filmed at Splitpoint Lighthouse, the Northcote streets and Tamale studios

seated in rows
knees and eyes closed i felt pretty
in the shoes and the dress
confused by the rest could he hear me?
lydia wears a cross
says she’s never gonna take it off
we sit back to back
listening to jesus christ
superstar soundtrack

i’d be a believer
if it was all just song and dance
i’d be a believer
if i thought we had a chance

eyes to the board
thoughts to our lord
we were praying for
princess diana
miss brown was keeping score
vivien’s holding on
but singing every single word wrong
on the parade float
just a child in a leotard beneath a technicolour dream coat

i’d be a believer
if it was all just song and dance
i’d be a believer
if i thought we had a chance

the line up, the quiet
the bleeding heart divided
forgive me, forgive me, forgive me go on now you try it

we sung “welcome to the family”
arms raised, at every assembly
little sirens singing their songs
where have the babies gone?

i’d be a believer
if it was all just song and dance
i’d be a believer
if i thought we had a chance
