ELLIS Shares New Song “March 13”

Ellis – Hamilton, Ontario’s Linnea Siggelkow – will release her triumphant debut album Born Again on April 3rd, and today she shares a new song off of the record ahead of its release. Following the previously released singles “Fall Apart” and Embarrassing,” “March 13” is a short but stunning interlude on the record and is out now via The FADER. “March 13’ plays right after the last single ‘Embarrassing’ on the track listing, and is a reflection on a night that I did embarrass myself,” explains Linnea. “I acted badly and put someone I cared about in an unnecessary and uncomfortable situation, but refused to admit at the time that I was out of line.” Linnea performed the song on socials last week HERE, and you can listen to it now HERE via The FADER.

Ellis’ upcoming headline and support dates with Ratboys have, unfortunately, been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. Stay tuned for updated tour dates coming soon.

Produced by Jake Aron (Snail Mail, Solange, Grizzly Bear) and recorded partly at Aron’s Brooklyn studio, Born Again arrives as the follow-up to Ellis’s debut EP The Fuzz—a self-released, self-produced effort that promptly led to a deal with Fat Possum Records. In a departure from the viscerally charged dream-pop of The Fuzz, Born Again unfolds with a mesmerizing subtlety, gracefully spotlighting Ellis’s unhurried melodies, starkly confessional lyrics, and luminous vocal work. Not only does this record and its production showcase Ellis’ incredible growth as a songwriter, but it also explores more complex and honest themes than her earlier work. “I grew up Christian and was quite devoted to faith up through my late teens, but I started challenging that once I got to university,” says Siggelkow, the daughter of a traveling book salesman and a piano teacher. “Since then I’ve been trying to redefine who I am and where I stand and what I think about these things on my own, and that journey very much played into the songwriting on this record.” Pre-order Born Again now, out April 3rd on Fat Possum Records, HERE.
