Johanna Warren shared the video for her new single “Here To Tell” today. The video depicts the Portland songwriter’s lyrics, which she describes as “the story of an interdimensional being who visits a young man in his sleep and takes him on a journey through the history of life on Earth, bestowing him with wisdom to help save humanity.”
“Here To Tell” will appear on Johanna Warren’s new album Gemini II, which is due out February 16 on her own Spirit House Records. NPR praised “Here To Tell” for “captur[ing] the spirit that animates much of Warren’s music and philosophy – an enduring belief that we can be better, despite the hurt and despair we put each other and ourselves through.” Stereogum named it their #1 Best Song of the Week, saying, “‘Here To Tell’ starts melancholic but winds up being transportive. Initially, it sounds haunting. But by the end, you feel cleansed.”
Gemini II will be released on vinyl as a double LP with Warren’s 2016 record Gemini I. The LP is available for pre-order here.
