Jackie Lynn (Circuit des Yeux & Bitchin Bajas) Announce LP and Tour; Share Song + Video

Jackie Lynn are pleased to announce they have signed to Drag City and will be releasing their sophomore album Jacqueline on April 10th. Along with the announcement, the band have shared the album’s first single, the driving and hypnotic opening song “Casino Queen,” which is accompanied by a video directed by Krzys Piotrowski and the band’s Haley Fohr. The album is the follow-up to 2016’s widely acclaimed, self-titled debut. The band has also announced shows in their hometown Chicago, as well as in Brooklyn and Philadelphia, in addition to a European tour. See below for full list of dates.

Speaking on the origins of the song and video, Fohr states: “‘Casino Queen’ showcases a night in the life of Jacqueline.  The song and video follow the letting go of an individual’s underdog mentality, realigning it with the winner’s place. What does it take to refocus one’s internal mirror and become a Casino Queen?  All in due time shall we each define ourselves prosperous by way of intuition, self belief, nearby shoulders, a bit of luck, and maybe a wig.”

Jackie Lynn is the fictional alter ego of singer/songwriter Haley Fohr who is also known for her indie folk project Circuit des Yeux. The debut told the story of Jackie’s (of course fictional) life to date. With Jacqueline, Jackie Lynn returns and her continuing story is brought to us by Fohr, Cooper Crain, Rob Frye and Dan Quinlivan of Bitchin Bajas.
