Directed by Sophia Peer (Paramore, The National, Interpol), Julien Baker has released the music video for her latest single 'Turn Out The Lights'.

Baker also appeared on the season premiere of legendary US radio program Prairie Home Companion last weekend, performing acclaimed singleAppointments’, previously unheard album cut ‘Hurt Less’ and a rendition of the traditional hymn ‘It Is Well With My Soul’.

Recorded at the legendary Ardent Studios in Baker’s hometown of Memphis, TN, Turn Out The Lights expands upon the sound and vision of Sprained Ankle while retaining the haunting, confessional songwriting style for which she has become known. Throughout the album, she reflects on experiences of her own and those closest to her, exploring the internal conflicts that wrestle inside us all: how we deal and cope with our struggles, and how it all impacts both ourselves and our relationships of all kinds. The result is a deeply empathetic album that embraces the grays and complex truths of humanity and mental health. Turn Out The Lights was written and produced by Baker, and mixed by Craig Silvey (The National, Arcade Fire, Florence & the Machine).
