Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton Share ‘Fatal Gift,’ Detail New Record

Second full-length LP coming in September

Emily Haines has announced her first solo record in over a decade, sharing details on Choir of the Mind. The follow-up to Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton’s Knives Don’t Have Your Back and companion EP What Is Free To A Good Home? will arrive September 15, 2017 via Last Gang Records/eOne.

Haines shared the forthcoming record’s first single, “Fatal Gift,” on Friday. Watch the brand new video below.

“Parts of the album that would normally have become string arrangements were instead turned into layers of vocals, the resulting impression being ‘a lullaby over a panic attack,’” Haines told the Globe and Mail in an exclusive feature Friday.
