Julia Jacklin unveils new single 'baby jesus is nobody's baby now'

Following up the release of her standalone singles 'to Perth, before the border closes' and 'CRY' in the last few months, Julia Jacklin is now capping off her 2020 with a rather sombre festive offering.

The new track 'baby jesus is nobody's baby now' was written last year during the bushfires in Australia, when Jacklin was unable to get home to her family at Christmas.

Speaking about the new offering, she said, “2019 was a pretty rough one for my family. I was touring the whole year carrying a lot of guilt for not being able to be at home. Singing super sad songs every night was a blessing and a curse depending on the day. I was imagining Christmas as being this time where we all came together again and took a collective breath but then the bushfires hit and my family live in the country so it was a direct threat. I was living in Melbourne, still pretty new to it, and wasn’t able to go home, the roads were blocked and my family were being evacuated periodically for a month. At one point Melbourne was blanketed in smoke from the fires, the sun was this menacing red, it felt apocalyptic and pretty hopeless. I wrote this in my room looking forward to 2020, hoping it would be a reset of some kind lol.”
