Julia Holter will release a new album this autumn.

'Aviary', the follow up to 2015's 'Have You In My Wilderness' and last year's live LP, 'In The Same Room', will arrive on October 28 through Domino. It takes its name from a 2009 short story by writer Etel Adnan: "I found myself in an aviary full of shrieking birds." Holter said:

"Amidst all the internal and external babble we experience daily, it's hard to find one's foundation. I think this album is reflecting that feeling of cacophony and how one responds to it as a person - how one behaves, how one looks for love, for solace. Maybe it’s a matter of listening to and gathering the seeming madness, of forming something out of it and envisioning a future.”

The first single to be shared from the record is I Shall Love 2 and it arrives with a video directed by Dicky Bahto. The track begins with a sparse composition and Holter repeating "I am in love, what can I do?", before she is joined by an abundance of strings and interweaving melodies. The song continues to build toward an uplifting and chaotic crescendo.
