Alison Mosshart (The Kills, The Dead Weather) has shared her second solo song “It Ain’t Water,” and has revealed details of the forthcoming 7-inch release on Domino Records. The vinyl release pairs this extraordinary new track with previously-released digital single “Rise,” available for pre-order now and set for physical release on July 31. “Rise,” her debut solo track recorded for Facebook Watch show Sacred Lies, was released in April.
Written late last year, “It Ain’t Water” was recorded with Alain Johannes (Queens of the Stone Age, PJ Harvey). Mosshart had been sitting on the track for quite some time, and every time the singer found herself battling a bout of writer’s block, she’d pick up her guitar and sing it.
Alison on working with Alain Johannes: “Working with Alain on ‘It Ain’t Water’ was a blast. He’s such a talent and such a kind person. His mind is wide open. He understands and sees the beauty in imperfection, magic moments, accidents- the soulful human stuff, and the spirited super-human hard to explain stuff that makes a song great. Working with him was an honor, and also, hot damn he can play any instrument like a champ… like he invented the instrument himself. Alain Johannes IS music.”
