Jehnny Beth unveils new single 'Heroine'

With her highly-anticipated debut album just over a month away, Jehnny Beth has now dropped the next cut to be lifted from her forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Heroine' was produced by the acclaimed producer Flood, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Innocence', 'Flower' and 'I'm The Man' in previewing her first solo LP 'To Love Is To Live', which is due to be released on the 12th June.

Speaking about her latest offering, she said, “When I think of this song, I think of Romy from the xx strangling my neck with her hands in the studio. She was trying to get me out of my shell lyrically, and there was so much resistance in me she lost her patience. The song was originally called Heroism, but I wasn’t happy because it was too generic. Flood was the first one to suggest to say Heroine instead of Heroism. Then I remember Johnny Hostile late at night in my hotel room in London saying, “I don’t understand who you are singing about. Who is the Heroine? You ARE the Heroine”. The next morning, I arrived early in the studio and recorded my vocals adding ‘to be’ to the chorus line: “all I want is TO BE a heroine”. Flood entered the studio at that moment and jumped in the air giving me the thumbs up through the window. I guess I’m telling this story because sometimes we look around for role models, and examples to follow, without realising that the answer can be hidden inside of us. I was afraid to be the Heroine of the song, but it took all the people around me to get me there.”
