Twice Grammy-nominated, Mercury Prize and BRIT Award-winning artist Arlo Parks has announced the release of her second album, My Soft Machine, due out May 26 on Transgressive Records. With the news, she shares the first taster of the new record ‘Weightless’ which premiered as Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1, an ethereal, warm and cinematic offering, with her acclaimed lyrical flair spotlighted once again. Alongside the new single is the Marc Oller-directed official video, watch here.

My Soft Machine is a deeply personal body of work; a narration of Parks’ experiences as she navigates her 20’s and the growth intertwined. Explained ever-articulately in her own words below, you can also watch this beautiful performance video to learn more about the coming record and the themes within.

“The world/our view of it is peppered by the biggest things we experience - our traumas, upbringing, vulnerabilities almost like visual snow. This record is life through my lens, through my body - the mid 20s anxiety, the substance abuse of friends around me, the viscera of being in love for the first time, navigating PTSD and grief and self sabotage and joy, moving through worlds with wonder and sensitivity - what it’s like to be trapped in this particular body. There is a quote from a Joanna Hogg film called the Souvenir, it’s an A24 semi-autobiographical film with Tilda Swinton - it recounts her falling in love with an older, charismatic man as a young film student then being drawn into his addiction - in an early scene he’s explaining why people watch films - “we don’t want to see life as it is played out we want to see life as it is experienced in this soft machine.” So there we have it, the record is called... My Soft Machine.” - Arlo Parks
