Julia Jacklin is wrapping up her final shows with First Aid Kit tonight in Portland. The North American tour is a warm up run for the Australian artist who is preparing to release her new album early next year.
Fans have been given an early taste of what Jacklin has coming with NPR Music today premiering the new song and video for “Body.” Watch here
“Nick and I drove out to the Hay Plain which is one of my favourite parts of Australia and filmed this clip. We spent about 14 hours in the car, jumping out when something looked beautiful. Whenever I listened to this song I knew the clip had to be a driving one, destination unknown.
The song speaks for itself I think but I’d say it’s just a very long and exaggerated sigh. Born from feelings of powerlessness when it comes to the impossible task of representing yourself the way you think is right; personally and professionally. When you feel like everything is for the taking no matter what you do.”
