WATCH // Teaser For Julianna Barwick’s ‘Nepenthe,’ Album Out August 20

Julianna Barwick has a brand new album coming to you August 20. Created this past February in Reykjav√≠k, Iceland, Nepenthe speaks to the isolation and grief Julianna experienced during the making of the album. Taking her recording process out of the bedroom and into a foreign country led Julianna to welcome new beings, both human and landscape, into the making of her third album. The ending is Julianna much as we’ve seen her before, only this time the experience is heightened.

Today, we are treated to the first look and sound of Nepenthe. Watch the Derrick Belcham directed album trailer “Forever” above or at Pitchfork. You’ll find the Nepenthe album artwork and tracklisting below.
