NEWS: Julia Holter reveals new video ‘I Shall Love 2’ & ‘Aviary’ album details

Julia Holter has shared her evocative new video ‘I Shall Love 2’ and revealed details of her new album Aviary.

Aviary is an epic journey through what Julia Holter describes as “the cacophony of the mind in a melting world.”Out on October 26th via Domino, it’s promises to be the Los Angeles composer’s most expansive album yet, full of startling turns and dazzling instrumental arrangements. The follow-up to her acclaimed 2015 record, Have You in My Wilderness, it takes as its starting point a line from a 2009 short story by writer Etel Adnan: “I found myself in an aviary full of shrieking birds.” It’s a scenario that sounds straight out of a horror movie, but it’s also a pretty good metaphor for life in 2018, with its endless onslaught of political scandals, freakish natural disasters, and voices shouting their desires and resentments into the void.

Amidst all the internal and external babble we experience daily, it’s hard to find one’s foundation,”says Holter. “I think this album is reflecting that feeling of cacophony and how one responds to it as a person – how one behaves, how one looks for love, for solace. Maybe it’s a matter of listening to and gathering the seeming madness, of forming something out of it and envisioning a future.”

In a lot of the songs, when I mention love, it’s about a seeking for compassion and humility in a world where it feels like empathy is always being tested,” Holter says. In Aviary’s case, that search for sweetness – that bridging of the gulf – becomes a metaphor for the creative process itself.
