Julia Jacklin Announces Debut Album, Plus New Track ‘Leadlight’

Julia Jacklin has announced her debut album 'Don't Let The Kids Win'!  This incredible record will be released on 7th October via Transgressive Records - check out the video for brand new track 'Leadlight' here.

Having garnered high praise after her performances at SXSW and The Great Escape, and more recently a string of sold out tour dates throughout Australia and Europe, the Australian-born singer/songwriter is poised to have a breakout year.

 

Jacklin will tour extensively throughout the UK, Europe and North America with a headline show in London at The Lexington on 31st August 2016. She has also been invited to perform as a special guest of Marlon Williams in the US and Whitney in the UK and Europe. Full list of dates below.

 

Hailing from the Australian Blue Mountains, Julia Jacklin is a guitarist and singer like no other. Her music courses with the aching current of alt-country and indie-folk, augmented by her undeniable calling cards: her rich, distinctive voice, and her playful, observational wit. For the past several years Jacklin has lived in a garage in Glebe (a suburb of Sydney), working a day job on a factory production line making essential oils, all the while finding time to hone her craft – to examine her turns of phrase, to observe the stretching of her friendship circles, to wonder who she was and who she might become. And now, as Jacklin quits her factory job to focus solely on a music career, the future she had once imagined is becoming her present day reality. “It feels really good to be getting closer to my first album release,” says Jacklin, “it has been a very long dream of mine.”

 

The album will be available digitally, on CD and ltd. edition blue vinyl - you can also order a bundle with an exclusive t-shirt or limited edition signed poster.  Pre-order your copy:
