Jen Cloher has announced her new self-titled album to be released Friday 11th August. Jen has also shared the first single from the album, ‘Forgot Myself’, and writes about the sacrifices and difficulties of maintaining a long-distance relationship. Listen and watch the accompanying video below!
Of the song’s inspiration, Jen said “You want to be with your partner celebrating big moments in their life but at the same time you have your own life to live thousands of miles away. It’s easy to stop taking care of yourself. Easy to forget yourself.”
The album was recorded amidst the rolling greenery of South-Eastern Australia and mixed at Jeff Tweedy’s famous Loft Studios in Chicago, the songs are split by Courtney Barnett’s lead guitar and anchored by the rhythm section of Bones Sloane and Jen Sholakis. The end result is bold, assured, and piercingly observed, seeing Cloher face up to painful truths with unwavering honesty and emerge triumphant.
Jen Cloher is set for an Australian tour kicking off in Brisbane on 24th August, Sydney on 25th August, Fremantle on 3rd September, Melbourne on 8th September and Adelaide on 9th September. More tour details below.
