Listen: EMA – “3Jane”

The Future's Void Streets April 8 On Matador

EMA’s sophomore album The Future’s Void is out on April 8. We’ve already heard the “Satellites” and “So Blonde.” Today the musician released a new track called “3Jane.” A ragged ballad, “3Jane” suggests a future of disassociation thanks to the internet.

“Another thing that really fucked me up is that somewhere along the way I feel like I lost control of my image,” EMA writes on her website. “I feel very confident in making the music I want to make, but I’m not a Mouseketeer. I can try to do it all myself but I run out of time. I don’t know how to pose for a photographer and sometimes when I’m in front of somebody else’s camera I don’t know what to do. So I would do the thing that I had seen before a million times in fashion mags and advertisements because I wanted to do a “good job.” And little by little, these pictures became more sexy and pouty until I didn’t recognize myself anymore. And those images went all around, and the bold-faced pull quotes from articles that didn’t quite get it right were right there next to the too sexy images until they became a thing both separate from me and also made up of me. I got weird disassociation. I got a weird neuromancer and I dyed my hair black and unplugged.”
