Julia Jacklin releases holiday single baby jesus is nobody’s baby now

Australian singer/songwriter Julia Jacklin has shared her melancholic holiday single, baby jesus is nobody’s baby now - watch the video below.

The single was written last year during the bushfires in Australia, when Jacklin was unable to get home to her family at Christmas. She explains:

"2019 was a pretty rough one for my family. I was touring the whole year carrying a lot of guilt for not being able to be at home. Singing super sad songs every night was a blessing and a curse depending on the day. I was imagining Christmas as being this time where we all came together again and took a collective breath but then the bushfires hit and my family live in the country so it was a direct threat. I was living in Melbourne, still pretty new to it, and wasn’t able to go home, the roads were blocked and my family were being evacuated periodically for a month. At one point Melbourne was blanketed in smoke from the fires, the sun was this menacing red, it felt apocalyptic and pretty hopeless. I wrote this in my room looking forward to 2020, hoping it would be a reset of some kind lol."

The video was directed by Julia and longtime collaborator Nick Mckk.
