Ethel Cain Releases New Single ‘Strangers’

    Ethel Cain has shared a new song from her forthcoming debut album Preacher’s Daughter. ‘Strangers’, which follows lead single ‘Gibson Girl’, serves as the album’s closing track. Check it out below.

    “This is the second song I wrote for this record, without the intention that it would become the ending,” Cain explained in a statement. “Looking back, I can’t imagine a more perfect resolution to this lineage. I think subconsciously, this song was always the end of the road. It’s the realization that some things cannot be avoided, only accepted, and that just because it isn’t a happy ending, doesn’t mean it’s a bad one. There is an ending in every beginning, and all things come back around in one strange way or another. You can’t change your past, nor anyone else’s, and the only real strength you have in this lifetime is your forgiveness.”

    Preacher’s Daughter, the follow-up to last year’s Inbred EP, arrives May 12 via Daughters of Cain. Read our Artist Spotlight interview with Ethel Cain.
