Australian singer/songwriter/actress Grace Cummings is releasing her third album, Ramona, this Friday via ATO. Now she has shared another song from it, “A Precious Thing,” via a music video. Watch it below, followed by Cummings’ upcoming tour dates, including some shows with King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.

Cummings had this to say about the dramatic song in a press release: “I wrote this song on Christmas Eve in 2022. I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. This song used to feature the screech of an eagle. We decided to take that part out and replace it with a Timpani.”

Cummings is also an accomplished theater actor, which explains some of the theatricality in her music and the power of her voice. Jonathan Wilson produced Ramona. The album’s title and title track was inspired by Bob Dylan’s 1964 song “To Ramona.”

“I didn’t want to be myself so I decided to be Ramona instead, full of intensity and melodrama,” Cummings explains in a press release. “For me there’s a lot of safety in putting on a costume or a mask; sometimes it feels like the only way to express any true honesty or vulnerability.”
