Grace Cummings has shares her new single On And On as well as announced details of her new album and confirming a string of UK tour dates.
The Australian singer-songwriter will release her upcoming third album Ramona on 5 April.
She will then tour the UK supporting King Gizzard and The Lizzard Wizard. The tour includes a gig at Liverpool Olympia.
The album features new single On And On, the first release from the upcoming long player. The album was recorded in Topanga Canyon with producer Jonathan Wilson. It follows previous albums Refuge Cove (her 2019 debut) and 2022 follow-up Storm Queen. The album promises a reflection on grief and self-destruction as well as emotional violence.
Speaking about the album and working in collaboration with artists including harpist Mary Lattimore and multi-instrumentalist Drew Erickson, Grace Cummings said, “I wanted everything and the kitchen sink on this record, to make it as big and dramatic as possible and show a whole range of colours. Jonathan and all the other musicians are so incredibly good at what they do, and so considered in their approach, but there was also a sense of fun and lightness in the studio that allowed me to be myself.”
“A lot of the time the only way for me to process what’s happening in my life is to write about it,” she says. “So it’s a deeply personal record. But I hope that people come away from this album feeling like the songs were written just for them. Because they were, in a way. Watching the deeply personal evolve into something that’s shared by so many different people makes me feel less lonely in this world.”
