Following this year’s collaborative album Love Letter For The Fire with Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam, Jesca Hoop is continuing her relationship with Sub Pop via a solo LP called Memories Are Now early next year. Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes, Fiona Apple) produced the project, which is teased today with a video for lead single “The Lost Sky.” Hoop’s vocals are frantic and hauntingly anxious, coupled with a simple acoustic arrangement and subtle bassline: “When we said the words ‘I love you’/ I said them ’cause they are true/ Why would you say those words to me if you could not follow through?” The accompanying visual from director Elia Petridis is eerie and not entirely what it seems. Memories Are Now is an album of stunningly original songs–raw yet brimming with energy, forged from rich life experience and emotional depth. Beautifully delivered by an artist that has steadfastly honed her unique craft of musical storytelling. This album sees Jesca Hoop at her most realized and very best in her vocation. She wastes no time in making clear the confidence, confrontation, and craftsmanship of her bold and exquisite new album. The album was recorded at NRG Studios, produced by Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes, Fiona Apple), engineered by Eric Caudieux, mixed by Greg Koller and mastered by Ian Sefchick at Capitol Mastering. Jesca Hoop will be touring in support of Memories Are Now, on both sides of the Atlantic in the new year.

Song Lyrics:

I walk the dark star, the lost sky
Searching for your signal, receive mine
I called you cold and our tears became laughter
Happy ever after

Out of our secrets, we built a home
Confide and fortify, blood, bone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

The bitter burden of a signal run cold
You became the dark star and left me all alone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

The bitter burden of a signal run cold
You became the dark star and left me all alone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

[:: CHORUS ::]
And when we said the words 'I love you'
I said them 'cause they are true
Why would you say those words to me
If you could not follow through?
Go wash your mouth out, child

I walk the dark star, the lost sky
Searching for your signal, receive mine
I called you cold and our tears became laughter
Happy ever after

Out of our secrets, we built a home
Confide and fortify, blood, bone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

The bitter burden of a signal run cold
You became the dark star and left me all alone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

[:: CHORUS ::]
And when we said the words 'I love you'
I said them 'cause they are true
Why would you say those words to me
If you could not follow through?
Go wash your mouth out, child

I walk the dark star, the lost sky
Searching for your signal, receive mine
I called you cold and our tears became laughter
Happy ever after

Out of our secrets, we built a home
Confide and fortify, blood, bone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

The bitter burden of a signal run cold
You became the dark star and left me all alone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

The bitter burden of a signal run cold
You became the dark star and left me all alone
A love like I was comes 'round once in a lifetime
Sending you a lifeline

And when we said the words 'I love you'
