Josienne Clarke delivers a serene, straightforward, and strikingly beautiful new single.

Josienne Clarke has released her third single (‘The Birds’ and ‘The Tangled Tree’) from her forthcoming album Onliness (songs of solitude and singularity). The track, ‘Words Were Never The Answer,’ is a serene, straightforward, and strikingly beautiful song that is, as she puts it, “the sum total of everything that I’ve learned.”

she continues:

“Nothing can be achieved with just melody and sentences, however well you structure them,” she explains. “You only ever make pretty shapes with pain and the best you can hope for is that it resonates somehow with someone else in some way. It’s not intended to be as bleak as that sounds; I’m making light of the foolish grandiosity that drives artistic endeavor and–to be honest–in an industry that’s often so hostile a landscape to the artist we need that kind of motivation, as ‘meaninglessly lovely’ as it is.”

‘Words Were Never The Answer’ is available today. Her forthcoming album Onliness (songs of solitude and singularity) is due out on April 14th via Corduroy Punk Records.
