CAMBRIDGE, MASS. –Juliana Hatfield releases her second single “Gorgon,” today on American Laundromat Records. The song is featured on her 19th solo studio album Blood, “an irresistible catharsis laced with endless earworms” (- WBUR ) due 5/14/21. Juliana will celebrate the new album with a live stream performance from Q Division Studios on Saturday, May 8th at 4 pm ET.
Inspired by the Greek mythical creatures, Juliana sings of a non-compliant, discontented woman who escapes from the chains of love on “Gorgon”: “I never said I was an angel / I never said I ever cared / I never promised anyone anything / no enchanted fairytales / you must have interpreted it wrong / because I don’t sing love songs”
Playing all the instruments on the track, “it was fun building it up from scratch and then letting it all hang loose in the long free-pop/jazz outro,” Juliana explains. “Recording at home, there’s no one stopping me from indulging in every wacky musical whim that pops into my head.”
It was preceded in January by the gritty and abrasive, yet groovy and melodic first single “Mouthful of Blood.”
Blood is available for pre-order now on American Laundromat Records.
