Julien Baker - 'Red Door' Conversation Piece'

Julien Baker recently returned with her first new solo recordings in almost two years, previously only available as a Record Store Day Exclusive 7”. The Red Door/Conversation Piece 7” debuted at #6 on the Record Store Day Exclusive, both songs are now available to stream on all services. A fan-favourite during live shows, “Red Door” is a lush and atmospheric track driven by Baker’s complex fingerpicking and a hint of slide guitar, her voice soaring as she pleads “set me on fire in the middle of the street / bend my knees, paint the concrete / the colour of my bloody knuckles / pulling splinters form the chapel door.” A previously unreleased cut begun during the Turn Out the Lights sessions, “Conversation Piece” is a meditation on loneliness, backed by delicate percussion and chiming guitars. Julien Baker will be touring throughout the summer, including festival appearances at Roskilde, Øya, and Haldern Pop.
