Johanna Warren Premieres New Track “Hopelessness Has Done Nothing For Me”

Johanna Warren released the latest track from her forthcoming new album Gemini II today; “Hopelessness Has Done Nothing For Me” is a plaintive song that finds the Portland songwriter hesitating to open her heart, singing, “Now you’ve got a stranger in your home / You could kick him out / But then you would be alone.”


Gemini II is out February 16 on Spirit House Records; it will be released on vinyl as a double LP with its companion record Gemini I. The LP is available for pre-order here.

Johanna’s Plant Medicine Tour kicks off next month — Warren will collaborate with local herbalists and biodynamic farmers in each city to talk about their work. Each performance will involved an element of guided sound healing meditation. Warren is a certified Reiki master and will also be offering Reiki classes and private healing sessions in select cities.
