Today Julia Holter shares the passionate torch song, Betsy On The Roof, taken from her highly anticipated forthcoming album Have You In My Wilderness, released 25th September on Domino. 

Have You in My Wilderness was written from the heart – warm, dark and raw – and explores love, trust, and power in human relationships. While love songs are familiar in pop music, Holter manages to stay fascinatingly oblique and enigmatic, with some of the most sublime and transcendent music she has ever written. Like Holter’s previous albums, Have You in My Wilderness is multi-layered and texturally rich, featuring an array of electronic and acoustic instruments played by an ensemble of gifted Los Angeles musicians.


Have You in My Wilderness is also Holter’s most sonically intimate album, with her vocals front and centre in the mix, lifted out of the layers of smeared, hazy effects. The result is striking: clear and vivid, but disarmingly personal. 



Have You In My Wilderness will be available on CD (WIGCD341), Digital (WIG341D) and LP (WIGLP341). For a very limited period the vinyl LP will come with a photographic print signed by the artist, via Dom Mart only. The album is available to pre-order with an instant grat of ‘Feel You’ (watch the video HERE), ‘Sea Calls Me Home’ and ‘Betsy On The Roof’. Pre-order from Dom Mart HERE and iTunes HERE.
