Julia Jacklin Shares New Holiday Song ‘baby jesus is nobody’s baby now’

    Julia Jacklin has released a new holiday song called ‘baby jesus is nobody’s baby now’.  It arrives with a visual co-directed by Jacklin and Nick Mckk. Watch it below.

    “2019 was a pretty rough one for my family,” Jacklin wrote in a statement. “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.”

    Julia Jacklin’s last album Crushing came out last year. More recently, she shared two new songs, ‘to Perth, before the border closes’ and ‘CRY’.
