Julianna Barwick - Healing Is a Miracle LPNinja Tune
Julianna Barwick - acclaimed, composer, vocalist and producer who crafts ethereal, sometimes wordless soundscapes, built around multiple loops and layers of angelic harmonies. “Healing Is A Miracle’ is her first studio release in 5 years, and marks her highly anticipated return in collaboration with her new label, Ninja Tune. Much lauded by the critics, Julianna has been supported and featured by The New Yorker, The New York Times, Pitchfork, NPR, The Fader, The Guardian, CoS, Stereogum and more.
The title of the new record is inspired by the wonder of how the human body heals itself - a miraculous process that we pay little attention to and by which the artist feels enthralled. Recorded in the wake of a seismic shift in her life following a move from New York to Los Angeles, where she is now based, the release sees her embrace her new locale and drawing on the input of three exciting collaborators she’s nurtured long and deep friendships with: Jónsi (Sigur Rós), Mary Lattimore and Nosaj Thing, all of whom are also based in the city and gently nudge out at the edges of Barwick’s organically-evolved sound.
Known for her stunning live performances, which have gained incredible praise over the years, she has supported and performed with artists including Bon Iver, Grouper, The War On Drugs, Sigur Ros, Sharon Van Etten, Flying Lotus, Angel Olsen, Mas Ysa, Yoko Ono and Nat Baldwin. Live tour dates in North America and Europe is planned to support the album release in late 2020/ 2021.
