British singer/songwriter Marika Hackman has announced a new album, Any Human Friend, and shared a video for its first single "i'm not where you are" (the audio of which was shared last month and was one of our Songs of the Week). She's also announced some U.S. tour dates for this fall. Any Human Friend is due out August 9 via Sub Pop. Check out the Will Hooper-directed "i'm not where you are" video below, followed by the album's tracklist, as well as her upcoming tour dates. Above is the album's striking cover art.

Any Human Friend is the follow-up to her 2017-released breakthrough release, sophomore release I'm Not Your Man. Hackman co-produced the album with David Wrench (Frank Ocean, The xx, Let's Eat Grandma).

In a press release Hackman sums up the album this way: "This whole record is me diving into myself and peeling back the skin further and further, exposing myself in quite a big way. It can be quite sexual. It's blunt, but not offensive. It's mischievous." 

Hackman adds: "I'm a hopeless romantic. I search for love and sexual experience, but also I'm terrified by it."

Hackman is unabashed about tackling these themes, even if her only family is a little less enthused. "I sent 'all night' to my parents and they were quite shocked," she says in the press release. "Why does it sound shocking coming out of my mouth? Women have sex with each other, and it seems to me we aren't as freely allowed to discuss that as men are. But at no point am I disrespecting the women I'm having sex with. It can be fucking sexy without banging people over the head with a frying pan. It's sexy sex."

In a previous press release Hackman said "i'm not where you are" "is about breaking up with people, or self-sabotaging relationships. That feeling of not trusting one's emotions because you can't seem to get to the same place as the other person. On the surface, it seems like an arrogant 'everybody falls in love with me' kind of song but its actually incredibly lonely, introspective, and self-deprecating."
