Julien Baker has unveiled a new song.

Hardline opens her new album, 'Little Oblivions', which is due out on February 26 through Matador Records. The track finds the often melancholic singer-songwriter backed by a full band and ominous strings to deliver the emotionally hard-hitting track that offers up some rousing crescendo moments. 

The single arrives accompanied by a stop motion animated video created by Joe Baughman, who said:

“Man, even after having spent 600 hours immersed in ‘Hardline’ and having listened to it thousands of times, I am still moved by it. It was a fun and ambitious challenge creating something that could accompany such a compelling song.
"The style of the set design, inspired by a sculpture that Julien created, was especially fun to work in. I loved sifting through magazines, maps, and newspapers from the 60s and 70s and finding the right colors, shapes, and quotes to cover almost every surface in the video.”

Head here to spin the album's previously released cut Faith Healer.
