Methyl Ethel has announced a new album, Are You Haunted?, which is set for release on February 18 via Future Classic. Along with the announcement, the Australian artist – real name Jake Webb – has shared a new collaboration with Stella Donnelly called ‘Proof’. The track comes with an accompanying video directed by Webb. Check it out below.
“Stella is one of the most truth-telling artists I’ve ever heard,” Webb commented in a statement. Donnelly added, “It made for a perfect match. Working on ‘Proof’ with Jake felt like being invited to the set of your favourite movie, such an insightful and wonderful experience.”
To make his fourth album, Webb returned to the studio where he recorded and wrote his first material as Methyl Ethel. “A dear friend of mine recently passed away, the studio is his,” he explained. “I spent many years of experimentation with him, learning so much looking over his shoulder. It feels special to continue to share the space with his ghost, I’m still learning from him.”
Methyl Ethel’s last album, Triage, came out in 2019. That same year, Donnelly released her debut full-length, Beware of the Dogs.
