Singer/songwriter Little Scream has shared her latest single “The Kissing,” the third release from her latest full-length Cult Following. The song builds slowly to showcase a blazing guitar and vocal solo and features TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone as the voice of a Magic 8 Ball with the power to give eerily specific answers.
“The Kissing” joins the dance-pop heaven of “Love as a Weapon” and emotional heft of “Someone Will Notice” in continuing to unlock the inner psyche of Little Scream through her sensational new album.
In addition to Malone, Mary Margaret O’Hara, Sufjan Stevens, Sharon Van Etten, Aaron and Bryce Dessner from The National, and Owen Pallett all make guest appearances on this album, but the world they inhabit is entirely Little Scream’s. Her voice acts as a tour guide through lush sonic landscapes carefully constructed with her creative partner, Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry.
Cult Following is available for pre-order now on CD and limited-edition translucent blue vinyl in the Merge store, and digitally via iTunes. Little Scream will tour with Thao & The Get Down Stay Down in April and Land of Talk in May with even more dates coming soon. Stay tuned to Little Scream at Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and her official website.
