With less than a month until the release of her awaited new album Lilac Everything on 14 September, Emma Louise reveals another cut from the record in ‘Falling Apart’, complete with a live video.

“‘Falling Apart’ was the last song I wrote for the album. I was having a lot of conflicting feelings and went to a friend’s party. I arrived too early and they had a piano. I wrote the song and then left before anyone arrived.”  – Emma Louise

Despite its sombre story, ‘Falling Apart’ is without doubt one of the stand-out moments on Lilac Everything – a warm, all-encompassing offering with Emma’s striking vocals at the forefront. The live video was filmed at 64 Sound in LA with a full band, and finally allows fans to visualise Emma singing with the pitched down vocal effect used throughout the entire album.

Comprised of 10 thoroughly unique new songs, Lilac Everything was written by Emma during a brief sojourn in Mexico. The songs were later recorded at Bear Creek Studio in Seattle with Tobias Jesso Jnr. and mixed by Grammy-award winning sound-engineer Shawn Everett. Notably the album marks Jesso Jnr’s first time working as a producer.

Earlier cuts ‘Wish You Well’ and ‘Mexico’ attracted attention for their open and honest lyrics, but also their brave use of the pitched down vocal effect. It’s a decision that has won Emma praise from fellow creatives and fans, and makes for a wholly unique and novel listening experience.
