Du Blonde Goes Into ‘Hunter’ Mode on New Song
'Welcome Back to Milk' drops on May 19 via Mute Records
The artist formerly known as Beth Jeans Houghton (now Du Blonde) has a breathtaking new ballad called “The Hunter,” which is taken from her forthcoming record, Welcome Back to Milk. Accompanied by piano chords and winding guitar solos, the slow-burning “Hunter” is a noticeably more vulnerable-sounding cut and highlights Houghton’s strong, trilling vocals.
Commenting on her new single in a press release, Houghton says: “It was one of those songs that just kind of pours out; it wasn’t hard to write. I was listening to a lot of Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin at the time, and I was really into their way of putting a lot of honesty and emotion into their songs.”
Hear Houghton go into “Hunter” mode above, and look out for Welcome Back to Milk when it arrives on May 19 via Mute.
