This Friday, February 26, Julien Baker is releasing her new album Little Oblivions. Today, she’s shared the fourth offering from the record, “Heatwave,” along with a lyric video made by Sabrina Nichols. Watch below.
“‘Heatwave’ is really just about being confronted with how much time I spend worrying about things that are trivial,” Baker said in a statement. “I was stuck in traffic because a car had randomly combusted, and it made me feel so stupid for being concerned with the things I had been anxious about earlier that day. It was just such a poignant thing, an event that communicated a lot of complex things in a single image. So I wrote a song about it.” Find her full statement below.
