At the top of next month, Ellis — the project of Canadian singer-songwriter Linnea Siggelkow — will release her long-anticipated debut album, Born Again, a project of immense emotional vulnerability. In contrast to the gauzy dreaminess of her last few singles, her newest, a forlorn interlude titled "March 13," strips it all back to just Siggelkow and her piano for a fleeting moment of sobering remorse.
“‘March 13’ plays right after the last single ‘Embarrassing’ on the track listing, and is a reflection on a night that I did embarrass myself,” Siggelkow wrote in an email. “I acted badly and put someone I cared about in an unnecessary and uncomfortable situation, but refused to admit at the time that I was out of line.”
Hear "March 13" below. Ellis's Born Again is out on April 3 via Fat Possum.
