Dark post-rocker A.A. Williams has shared a video for her brand new single, the intense Evaporate, which you can watch below.
It's taken from her second studio album As The Moon Rests, which will be released through Bella Union on October 7. The album is the follow-up to Williams' acclaimed 2020 debut album Forever Blue. She also released the acoustic Songs From Isolation later the same year, a lockdown covers project.
“Traditionally, your second album is the worry; where there’s the weight of expectation,” says Williams. “But I must create music I like myself, and I’ve had more time on this record; I’ve felt more confidence and conviction. As The Moon Rests is both heavier and softer, there’s more texture and weight, and a string ensemble. It’s Forever Blue times ten!
“Most of Forever Blue’s text was quite insular. I was trying to understand myself, trying to cure, or eradicate, parts of myself. But I realised that if you remove things; you might remove parts of your personality too. You just need to learn how to manage things, to be kinder to yourself. It’s all a journey, a progression.”
Williams will be performing. at various festivals throughout the summer and headlines her biggest headline show yet at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall on September 17. She will also tour throughout November in support of As The Moon Rests.
