Ethel Cain has unveiled a new single, ‘American Teenager’, lifted from her forthcoming debut album Preacher’s Daughter. The track follows previous offerings ‘Gibson Girl’ and ‘Strangers’. Check it out below.
“Growing up I was surrounded by visions of Nascar, rock’n’roll, and being the one who would change everything,” Cain explained in a statement. “They make you think it’s all achievable and that if nothing else, you should at least die trying. What they don’t tell you is that you need your neighbor more than your country needs you. I wrote this song as an expression of my frustration with all the things the ‘American Teenager’ is supposed to be but never had any real chance of becoming.”
Preacher’s Daughter is set to arrive on May 12. Along with the new track, Cain has today announced the Freezer Bride Tour, which kicks off on July 14 in Bloomington, Indiana. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am local time; find the list of dates below.
