Julia Jacklin has officially released her dreamy cover of The Strokes hit ‘Someday’.
Having originally recorded her version of the song for Triple J as part of their Like A Version series, Jacklin has released her slowed down studio version of the 2001 indie anthem.
The release comes as a break in touring for Jacklin who has just completed a run of sold-out headline shows in the UK and Europe earlier this year in support of her sophomore record, Crushing. Now though, Jacklin has returned to the UK for a special performance at Latitude Festival.
Crushing, the second full-length album from Julia Jacklin, is a hugely personal and emotional piece of work which perfectly exhibits the Australian musician’s innate storytelling ability. Arriving as the follow-up to her 2016 debut, Don’t Let the Kids Win, Crushing finds Jacklin in a deep moment of self-examination as she details pains of the past with brutal honesty.
Having teamed up with producer by Burke Reid for the album, Jacklin recorded at The Grove Studios, a location which allowed a different sentiment to be nourished during the creation of Crushing. “In all the songs, you can hear every sound from every instrument; you can hear my throat and hear me breathing,” she explained. “It was really important to me that you can hear everything for the whole record, without any studio tricks getting in the way.”
Jacklin continued: “With the first album I was so nervous and didn’t quite see myself as a musician yet, but after touring for two years, I’ve come to feel like I deserve to be in that space.”
Now though, Jacklin has had time to reflect on her time in and out of the studio and has shared her rendition of ‘Someday’ while she prepares for the next live shows.
Enjoy. Track of the Day.
