Ethel Cain has released the latest track from her upcoming debut album ‘Preacher’s Daughter’, which is out next month. ‘Strangers’ follows recent single ‘Gibson Girl’ and also serves as the album’s closing track.

“This is the second song I wrote for this record, without the intention that it would become the ending”, she says. “Looking back, I can’t imagine a more perfect resolution to this lineage”.

“I think, subconsciously, this song was always the end of the road”, she adds. “It’s the realisation that some things cannot be avoided, only accepted, and that just because it isn’t a happy ending, doesn’t mean it’s a bad one”.

“There is an ending in every beginning, and all things come back around in one strange way or another”, she goes on. “You can’t change your past, nor anyone else’s, and the only real strength you have in this lifetime is your forgiveness”.

‘Preacher’s Daughter’ is out on 12 May.
