LISTEN // Julianna Barwick Shares New Single “Same” Feat. Mas Ysa

We’ve reached the time of year where thunderstorms become more frequent, high and low temps colliding to dramatic affect. There’s a change in pressure that alerts of an oncoming storm. The wind picks up, as does the hair on the back of your neck. Julianna Barwick’s new single “Same” is that charge in the air.

The second offering from her forthcoming album, Will, “Same” features vocals from Thomas Arsenault aka Mas Ysa. Barwick on the new track and working with Arsenault,

“Mas Ysa’s Seraph was by far my favorite record of last year. So, imagine my delight when Tom agreed to lend some vocals to a couple songs on my new record Will. I was wrapping up the record in beautiful Lisbon when he sent them along, and they made this track ‘Same’ complete. Now, we’ll be playing several shows together this year and I can’t wait!”

The electric current that runs through the album takes on various shapes of intoxicating instability. Featuring contributions from Arsenault, Dutch cellist Maarten Vos and percussionist, Jamie Ingalls (Chairlift, Tanlines, Beverly), Will is largely a product of ups and downs, a reflection of a life lived somewhere in between transience and standing still. The beguiling, beautifully complicated Will is the result of that curiosity, and proof of Barwick’s irresistibly engaging talent as a composer and vocalist.

Will is out May 6th. You can pre-order your copy now via Barwick’s Official Website (w/ 7” bundle), Secretly Distribution, iTunes, Amazon, or your local independent record store.
