Today, the rising British indie/pop band Pale Waves have announced the details surrounding their highly-anticipated sophomore album. The album will be titled Who Am I? and will be released on February 12th, 2021 via Dirty Hit.

Who Am I? follows the band’s critically acclaimed 2018 debut album, My Mind Makes Noise. For Pale Waves’ front-woman Heather Baron-Gracie, her songwriting holds the last few years of her life up to the light, reflecting on her own mental health and growing pains – depression, distraction, and feelings of darkness – while also touching on her experience of falling in love and becoming more open about her sexuality, emerging with a clarity and optimism as she steps forward as the sort of front woman she never saw when she was growing up.

On the making of the album, Baron-Gracie says “For me, music and art is for people not to feel so alone and isolated. I want to be that person my fans look up to and find comfort in.”

Who Am I? was primarily recorded in Los Angeles with producer Rich Costey (Muse, Foo Fighters, Sigur Rós) before the COVID-19 pandemic forced the making of the album to go virtual, with Baron-Gracie remaining in LA and the rest of the band returning home to record their parts in their bedrooms.

In addition to the album announcement today, Pale Waves have also released the lead single off the album, “Change.” Released with an accompany music video, “Change,” is a nostalgic and catchy guitar track made up of stories of heartbreak, reflecting the different moods and emotions that we all go through.
