Marika Hackman Announces New Album ‘Big Sigh’

It's out on January 12th...

Marika Hackman will release new album ‘Big Sigh’ on January 12th.

The songwriter recently signalled her return, sharing potent new song ‘No Caffeine’. Now she’s gone one further – Marika is ready to embrace the next chapter in her life.

Out on January 12th, ‘Big Sigh’ is – its maker reveals – the hardest album she’s ever had to write, containing songs about love and loss, mental health, and attempting to find balance.

Recently announcing a show at London’s ICA, she sold it out within minutes. A full UK tour follows in March, with Marika Hackman now sharing an additional preview from her upcoming album.

Out now, ‘Hanging’ is constructed with Marika’s trademark care and attention, a song about looking back on a painful relationship. Unpicking tangled notions of the past, she muses on departures from her life, and how – even when it’s the right decision – it can hurt.

She comments…

“’Hanging’ is reflecting on a difficult past relationship and how you can trap yourself in a situation where you’re unable to grow into the next stage of your life. The line ‘yeah you were a part of me, i’m so relieved it hurts’ is describing how painful it still is to break up even if it’s not right.”

Tune in now.
