Julien Baker has shared a new taste of her forthcoming album Little Oblivions by way of a new single “Hardline“, which she releases today.
The video for “Hardline” was directed by Joe Baughman, who notes: “Man, even after having spent 600 hours immersed in ‘Hardline’ and having listened to it thousands of times, I am still moved by it. It was a fun and ambitious challenge creating something that could accompany such a compelling song. The style of the set design, inspired by a sculpture that Julien created, was especially fun to work in. I loved sifting through magazines, maps, and newspapers from the 60s and 70s and finding the right colors, shapes, and quotes to cover almost every surface in the video.”

Little Oblivions will be released on February 26 via Matador Records.
