Savages’ Jehnny Beth delays solo debut, shares “Innocence”
Savages frontwoman Jehnny Beth was set to release her solo debut, To Live Is to Love, on May 5, but with the coronavirus pandemic keeping most businesses closed, it's been postponed to June 12. “Record stores are where I found myself as a teenager, digging through albums that ultimately shaped who I have become," says Jehnny. "To release my first ever solo album in a way that would leave them out felt wrong to me; luckily, we were able to find a date that would allow us to release the physical and digital album at the same time.”
That's a slight bummer, but on the plus side, she's just released a new single, "Innocence," a rhythm-heavy track that finds her almost duetting with herself via pitched-down vocals. You can watch the video, filmed earlier this year at band rehearsals by director Andreas Neumann, below.
Jehnny Beth's upcoming North American tour, set for July, is still on for now. Meanwhile, her Apple Music radio show “Start Making Sense,” returns on July 18 at 11 AM Eastern. She's also been reading from her upcoming book of erotic short stories, Crimes Against Love Manifesto (C.A.L.M.), which is due out in July, every Friday on Instagram at 11 AM ET.
