Julia Jacklin will release a new 7-inch single on September 15th via Polyvinyl Recording Co. Today, she’s shared the lead track, “Eastwick”, which was apparently inspired by a night spent watching Dancing with the Stars on TV. It seems the binging led the Australian singer-songwriter to be struck by the whole idea of false representation in media. The song finds Jacklin cooing over lonely echoing guitars as she bemoans the concepts presented by “reality” television. “You are not in a garden, you are in a store,” she sings as the track picks up steam, “a single stemmed rose reaching out for more.”

“Eastwick” comes to us via the video at the top of the page, which Jacklin directed herself. The clip finds her sipping a blue martini as she tunes out her oblivious companion (bass player Harrison Fuller) and the suburban life around her. Check it out above.

In addition to the new track, Jacklin has revealed a run of North American headlining tour dates. The new stretch comes after a summer filled with shows alongside Mitski and at festivals like Los Angeles’ FYF Fest, Newport Folk, and Pickathon in Happy Valley, Oregon. Find her complete schedule below.
