Jessica Pratt has announced her fourth studio LP. Titled Here in the Pitch, the album is due out May 3 on Mexican Summer.
The news comes with the release of the project’s lead single, “Life Is,” Pratt’s first new song in five years, as well as a music video co-directed by Pratt and Colby Droscher. The new track is a upbeat forward march, a musical representation of undirected ambition whose tone belies an undercurrent of skepticism in the lyrics.
Pratt’s delivery is as cheerful as the triumphant drums, bass, and strings that undergird it — production that’s likened in a press release to the orchestral excess of ’60s pop hits like The Walker Brothers’ “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore” — but her words are ever-so-slightly out of sync: “Time is time and time and time again / And what would you say if you can’t get out of here?” she sings. “Time is time and time and time again / To make your escape you’ve captured the captor’s fear.” Read Next: Jessica Pratt shares “Aeroplane” and talks recording her new album Quiet Signs It’s an entirely distinct spiritual exercise from the earnest intimacy that characterized previous projects like 2019’s Quiet Signs, but Pratt says it’s “kind of a false flag,” claiming the rest of the album more reflective of her earlier work.
“Life came and went and you didn’t land where you thought you would,” she says of the track’s ambiguous theme. “It’s the third act and you’re trying to climb back on the horse before it gets dark.” According to the press release, the shadowy visual treatment for “Life Is” was shot in New York City late last year and inspired by the films of Kenneth Anger and Stan Brakhage.

Zack Sharf Digital News Director Timothée Chalamet first revealed in September 2022 that his “Don’t Look Up” co-star Leonardo DiCaprio once gave him brief but essential career advice: “No hard drugs and no superhero movies.” DiCaprio has never gone down the comic book movie route, and it’s a path Chalamet has also avoided so far despite the majority of his contemporaries signing up for Marvel and DC films in recent years. Is Chalamet still committed to DiCaprio’s advice? In a recent interview with The New York Times while on the press tour for “Dune: Part Two,” Chalamet said the door on starring in comic book movies is not completely shut the way it might be for DiCaprio.
