‘I’ll Cry’ is the new single to be taken from America, the debut solo album by Juanita Stein, out on 28th July on Nude Records.
Stein, who earned her acclaim as the singer-songwriter of Howling Bells, recorded the album with Gus Seyffert in Los Angeles, and I’ll Cry gives an alluring glimpse into the record. Stein has also just announced a brace of UK shows, in Brighton (1st August) and London (2nd Aug) to coincide with the album’s release.
“’I’ll Cry’ is a musical ode to the all American greats I took my cues from as a budding songwriter,” says Stein. “Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline and the work of Phil Spector, all of whom made a significant imprint on my heart, I’m forever channeling that soulful sadness. ‘I’ll Cry’ is a song that speaks of an impossible love, his resistance, her infatuation. Never a happy ending.”
