Julia Holter has announced Aviary, her first new album since 2015’s Have You In My Wilderness, and a North American and European tour to support the record. She also released “I Shall Love 2,” the album’s first single, and an accompanying video for the track.

Amidst all the internal and external babble we experience daily, it’s hard to find one’s foundation,” Holter said in a statement about Aviary. “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 album will arrive on October 26 through Domino records.

The nervy, decomposing aesthetic of the video for “I Shall Love 2,” directed by Dicky Bahto, captures the experimentation and rising energy of the track. Holter will tour Europe and North America starting this fall, beginning in California at the Desert Daze festival on October 14, with stops in Amsterdam, Germany, London, Washington, D.C., New York, and Los Angeles.
