EMA has shared a new single, Blood and Chalk.

The track is cut from the Portland-based artist's forthcoming album, 'Exile in the Outer Ring', which is set for release on August 25 through City Slang. 

Disussing the song, Erika M. Anderson said:

“Blood and Chalk was originally written for the #Horror soundtrack. I wrote the lyrics very quickly, with the idea that it was about the experience of being a 12 year-old girl, kind of right on the cusp between childhood and starting to grow up. But when I played it for Jake (Portrait) he said he thought it was about a police shooting. I was kind of shocked, but it also makes complete sense from that point of view. Makes me wonder if my subconscious mind was working on a different level, creating a double meaning.”

EMA will follow up the new record with a European tour, which will include UK stops in Brighton, London, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow and Leicester. Tickets are on sale now.

Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell! (Album Review)
Thu 05 Sep 2019
When Lana Del Rey’s Video Games attained viral status in 2011, it felt entirely plausible that her success would be a flash in the pan. Many critics (often male) derided her as a contrived, inauthentic pop star whose cinematic melancholia could not translate to long term appeal. Eight years and four albums later, they’ve been proven wrong about her longevity, and yet Del Rey’s multi-textured inauthenticity has flourished, and become a kind of defining brand. Sometimes you can be wrong and right at the same time.
