We're happy to share the new video for “In The Green Wild” directed by Yelena Zhelelov from Julia Holter's forthcoming album Loud City Song out August 20th (August 19th in the rest of world). Watch it below.  

“In The Green Wild” follows the main character of Loud City Song on a path out of the city and into the trees. It is the best example yet of Holter's playful-yet-focused approach to songwriting and production– her elastic, expressive voice weaving a patiently poetic narrative through a rich tapestry of double bass, abstracted horns, cello, strings and synth before building to a transcendent crescendo. 

Loud City Song is Holter's first studio album proper, and it both continues and furthers the singular vision of its predecessors, 2011’s debut Tragedy and last year’s Ekstasis, as she experiments with intricate arrangements of words and pop melodies to build both an individual collection of songs as well as one unified story--a "song" of songs.

Loud City Song is now available to pre-order on CD and Double LP from Domino Mart. Pre-orders of the album will receive an instant mp3 download of ‘In The Green Wild.’ 

Julia Holter will start a brief tour this week that includes a stop at Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago on July 20. In addition, there are new North American tour dates in September including a hometown Los Angeles show September 11 at the First Unitarian Church. Full list of dates below.
