16 Mar Listen To Joana Serrat’s New Single + Album Details Announced
Following our announcement back at the beginning of the year that Joana Serrat had joined Loose, we’re very excited to finally be able to share with you some new music. Tug Of War is the first song to be taken from Joana’s forthcoming new album, Cross The Verge, which will be out on the 6th May.
In Joana’s own words, “Tug of War is a song that talks about the people of my generation that we once followed all the paths we were told to walk. We did obey believing in what we’ve been told. At the end of this road we were supposed to find the good life and all that we end up seeing is a death land. We are going to be the first generation that won’t surpass our parents.“
To record this, her third album, Joana travelled from her home in Vic, near Barcelona, to Montreal, Canada to team up with producer Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, The Barr Brothers) in his analogue studio, The Hotel2Tango. In the recording process, Joana was joined by the likes of Gavin Gardiner (The Wooden Sky), Aaron Goldstein (Daniel Romano, City & Colour, Cowboy Junkies), acclaimed Canadian auto harpist and vocalist Basia Bulat, along with Neil Halstead (Slowdive, Mojave 3) and Ryan Boldt (The Deep Dark Woods) joining her for two duets.
Joana will be over here in the UK in May for a handful of shows, along with festival dates at Down By The River in The Netherlands and a return to Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival in June. Tickets are on sale now.
