Katie Gately has shared ‘Howl’, the third and final advance track to be lifted from her new album Fawn / Brute. It follows the already-released title tracks ‘Fawn’ and ‘Brute’, as well as ‘Cleave’. Take a listen below.
“‘Howl’ is my own musical rewrite of the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale,” Gately explained in a press release. “Instead of being hunted and tricked by the wolf, a young girl navigates through the forest with playful tact. She is directed entirely by her own curiosity and ignores the unsolicited advice of her fellow creatures. At the end of her adventure she’s met with an unhinged applause that I hope the listener will take personally. ‘Howl’ is the antithesis of looking over your shoulder and asking for permission. It’s a reminder to get outside, make a mess and play.”
Fawn / Brute arrives March 31 via Houndstooth.
