Hot on the heels of recent single releases Frida Kahlo, Signs and Get Up, Lion Babe today (August 6th) unveil their third studio album, Rainbow Child – an inspired and eclectic mix of 9 magical tracks that see singer-songwriter and performance artist Jillian Hervey and producer/DJ Lucas Goodman, dig deep into their souls to produce the most cohesive and profound work of their career date.
Inspired by, and created in response to the “heightened pain and injustice Black lives have been experiencing”, the album – which will have a visual for each track – perfectly showcases the heavenly combination of Jillian’s mesmerising vocals and spellbinding lyricism and Lucas’ intricate and addictive production and looks set to be the soundtrack of summer 2021.
In a joint statement the dynamic New York duo say of the record: “‘Rainbow Child’ celebrates and reconnects with our inner child. It explores all of the depths that we experience when we have changed but reminds us to always embrace it all. The pain, beauty, fear and love. Acceptance of life in its totality brings true radiance inside and out.”
