Taken from new album 'Heart Song'...

Jess Williamson won huge acclaim with 2014's debut full length 'Native State'.

Yet this attention seemed to raise more questions than answers. Picking apart her notions of home and comfort, the songwriter plunged head-long into her next project.

New album 'Heart Song' is the result. In turns stark and musically lush, hugely imaginative and yet entirely direct, the record seems to effortlessly move past her debut.

Out on November 4th, the record is preceded by wonderful new cut 'See You In A Dream' - a hazy, pastoral slice of songwriting.

The visuals were shot on VHS, and air first on Clash. Jess explains: "We shot the video for 'See You In A Dream mostly on VHS, with the idea that the VHS footage is like a dream sequence. My good friend Daniel Hill made the video, and we drew inspiration from an old Roky Erickson video. I mainly let him take the lead because I really like his work. We envisioned the video feeling surreal but with some humor. My only request was I wanted to dance. We shot in a bar and a bedroom, borrowing from the lyrics in the song, and on an air mattress on the water."

'Heart Song' is set to be released on November 4th.
