Indie Pop-Rockers Pale Waves have announced their second studio record, titled as ‘Who Am I’. The record is set to be released on February 12th 2021 via Dirty Hit.
Pale Waves’ comeback track ‘Change’ – described as “a true heartbreaker” – was premiered on BBC Radio 1 tonight (November 10) as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World.
The forthcoming full-length was recorded primarily in Los Angeles alongside producer Rich Costey (whom has previously worked with Muse and Foo Fighters) before the coronavirus crisis forced the studio sessions online.
According to a press release, ‘Who Am I?’ “acts as the Pale Waves manifesto – inspiring inclusivity, self-discovery, and the notion of being whoever the hell you want to be”. Its lyrics draw on frontwoman Heather Baron-Gracie’s own experiences of depression, distraction, and feelings of darkness.
“For me, music and art is for people not to feel so alone and isolated,” Baron-Gracie explained. “I want to be that person my fans look up to and find comfort in.”
