Australian singer/songwriter Angie McMahon has been on the rise lately, and now she announced her debut album, Salt, due July 26 via Dualtone/AWAL Recordings. It features her the recent singles she'd been rolling out, including "Pasta," "Missing Me," "Keeping Time," and the standout "Slow Mover," as well as the brand new "And I Am A Woman," which premieres in this post. Angie says:

This song started as a heated conversation, but I had to finish it on my own and make it into music, because I didn’t feel like talking, I felt like yelling. I wanted the hurting to be obvious.

There are all these things that our society teaches us about bodies, spaces, choices, feelings, safety, that we have to question and unlearn and do better with.

Sometimes I can’t articulate my sadness and my anger, and I want to do better at expressing myself when it comes to the language of equality and change.

I loved writing this, because I didn’t have to hold anything in.

It's a very powerful song, and as is often the case with Angie McMahon, her highly emotive voice sells it on first listen. Check it out below.

Angie is also touring, including solo acoustic shows in LA, NYC, and at Newport Folk Fest, and a run opening for Hozier (including his five Hammerstein Ballroom shows in November).

Her solo acoustic NYC show happens July 31 at Rockwood Music Hall (tickets). All dates are listed below.
