The double A-side singles arrived today along with news her album, titled Paint My Bedroom Black, is coming Oct. 13 via Darkroom/Geffen/Polydor Records. Now that's one Friday the 13th we're definitely looking forward to, for sure!
“I feel like two different people half the time,” says Humberstone. “I love everything I've released, but the biggest challenge is always to make something I feel I haven't done before, that reflects new parts of me.”
The big news comes as Humberstone previously confirmed she'll be playing a number of summer festivals including Lollapalooza, Osheaga and Outside Lands.
"This album is an exploration of the two sides of myself that coexist,” she says of the album. “One side, the introvert who wants to board the windows up and shut the world out, writing about wanting to escape my surroundings and the confusion of life on the road last year. The other side of me, the extrovert, writing about a budding relationship, deep connections and love. I spent most of last year on the road, and although I kept busy and enjoyed touring for the most part, I found myself retreating back to empty hotel rooms in foreign cities every night while watching my life at home carry on without me through my phone screen. Late at night, I felt the panic of being left behind the most. Yearning for home, I never felt like I was totally present wherever I was in the world. It all felt like some weird dream; like a fake existence that I was alone in. The only way I knew to find clarity was to write."
Coinciding with today's release is an accompanying video for new song "Antichrist," which can be seen below.
