July Talk have released their third studio album, Pray For It.

It marks the band’s first album release since 2016’s Touch.

Frontman Peter Dreimanis told Billboard that the album’s first single, “Governess Shadow”, was inspired by his great grandmother Alice and her two sisters who “were sent to finishing school in Moscow as teenagers to learn how to serve the wealthy families of the day”. He describes how it’s “about the deep imbalances of power in our world, and specifically how people are separated by wealth and gender.”

“I started thinking about this giant shadow that white men can step in and out of whenever it suits us, how we can simply decide when to break the rules and when to recite them… I wanted ‘Governess Shadow’ to raise a flag and a dagger and call out that comfortable complacency.”
