Jessica Pratt announces her fourth album, Here in the Pitch, will be released on May 3rd via Mexican Summer. With the announcement comes the release of lead single “Life Is” and its music video.

While Pratt’s previous work has featured a more sparse intimate folk sound, Here in the Pitch sees a more expansive set of influences, described as, “big panoramic sounds that make you think of the ocean and California.” You get a sense of this on “Life Is” which features grand orchestration and fuller richer textures and production that provide a heavenly backdrop for Pratt’s signature vocals.

Find the music video for “Life Is” below, which was co-directed by Colby Droscher and Pratt, and shot around New York City in late 2023 and looks to the films of Kenneth Anger and Stan Brakhage for inspiration.

You can also find the tracklist + her upcoming tour dates below as well.
