Miya Folick has released “Mommy,” the new single was co-produced by Folick and Gabe Wax (Soccer Mommy, Spoon, Helena Deland) and features saxophone from Sam Gendel. “Mommy,” is taken from Folick’s forthcoming album, Roach, available May 26 via Nettwerk. “Mommy,” follows the recently shared “Get Out Of My House.”

“Mommy is maybe the most intimate song on my record,” Folick says. “It’s about heritage, memory and family. I think there’s an ache in the song that exposes the gap between my limited understanding of my parents and the full richness of their lives. The first time I played this song live was at The Echo in Los Angeles, and my mom showed up—not joking—with a jar of honey for me, to soothe my throat (you’ll understand this anecdote when you listen to the song).”

Folick has embarked on an extensive North American and European tour, beginning with European dates with Dermot Kennedy and continuing in North America with Aly & AJ and The Head and the Heart/Father John Misty.

Roach chronicles Folick’s struggle to grow up and move through major life changes, reckoning with what it means to leave her youth behind and wearing the hardship endured like a badge of honor. “It’s an album about trying to get to the core of what life really is,” she explains. “I think over the course of writing this record, I actually did the work and got closer to the person that I really want to be, even if that path isn’t linear and I still have moments where I disappoint myself, where I’m angry with myself.”
