Jehnny Beth has released a third track titled “Innocence”. The track is about the feeling of isolation and distance Beth has experienced many times in big cities despite being so close to people all the time. Although recorded well before this, in many ways, it is an eerily prescient song of our now.
The release of “Innocence” is accompanied by a live video of the song filmed at rehearsal for Beth’s live show.
Additionally, Beth’s forthcoming debut solo album, To Love Is To Live, will now be released on June 12th via Caroline Records. The decision to push back the album release came largely from Jehnny Beth’s desire to support local independent record stores by making sure the physical album could come out at the same time. She says: “Record stores are where I found myself as a teenager, digging through albums that ultimately shaped who I have become. To release my first ever solo album in a way that would leave them out felt wrong to me; luckily, we were able to find a date that would allow us to release the physical and digital album at the same time.”
The album, which was recorded in Los Angeles, London, and Paris, features a number of collaborators, including producers Flood, Atticus Ross, and longtime co-creator Johnny Hostile, and guest turns from The xx’s Romy Madley Croft, actor Cillian Murphy, and IDLES’ Joe Talbot.
