Jehnny Beth Shares “Innocence;” Debut Solo LP Out June 12

Songwriter, singer, and multi-disciplinary artist Jehnny Beth has released a third track — titled “Innocence” – from her forthcoming album, To Love Is To Live, which has a new release date of June 12. “Innocence” is about the feeling of isolation and distance Jehnny Beth has experienced many times in big cities despite being so close to people all the time. Although recorded well before this, in many ways, it is an eerily prescient song of our now.

The release of “Innocence” is accompanied by a live video of the song filmed at rehearsal for Jehnny Beth’s incendiary live show, which debuted at the BBC 6 Music Festival last month. The Evening Standard raved about her set in a five star review, saying: “With off-kilter motorik rhythms, freestyle jazz and dark drones, Beth immersed listeners in a world that felt dystopian but ultimately encouraged escapism by ordering a rethink of restrictive gender conventions,” while Music OMH said, “The French force of nature prowls and purrs, asserting her dominance, over a cavalcade of chunky electronic beats…her upcoming debut solo album To Love Is To Live just became even more anticipated.” The video of “Innocence” pulses with the energy of that live show; except, in quarantine, it’s ultimately a candid show between you, the viewer, and Jehnny Beth.



Additionally, Jehnny Beth’s forthcoming debut solo album, To Love Is To Live, will now be released on June 12th via Caroline Records. The decision to push back the album release came largely from Jehnny Beth’s desire to support local independent record stores by making sure the physical album could come out at the same time. She says: “Record stores are where I found myself as a teenager, digging through albums that ultimately shaped who I have become. To release my first ever solo album in a way that would leave them out felt wrong to me; luckily, we were able to find a date that would allow us to release the physical and digital album at the same time.”
