The OPHELIAS – ” Neil Young On High ” feat Julien Baker

Posted: July 4, 2021 in MUSIC

Julien Baker has joined Ohio-based rock band The Ophelias on a new song – watch the video for ‘Neil Young On High’ below.

The track is the first preview of the band’s new album ‘Crocus’, set for release on September 24th via Joyful Noise Recordings. The Ophelias are: Spencer Peppet (she/her), Andrea Gutmann Fuentes (she/her), Mic Adams (he/him), Jo Shaffer (they/them).

Explaining the origins of the collaboration, The Ophelias’ singer and guitarist Spencer Peppet said: “We met Julien for the first time in 2019 at a show we played in Nashville. She introduced herself (as if we didn’t already know who she was) and I tried to not show how nervous I was!

“About half a year into 2020 quarantine I worked up the nerve to ask if she wanted to feature on a song from the album we were working on. She said yes, and I was seriously over the moon. She recorded her parts in Tennessee and we talked virtually.

“Her parts reinvigorated the song completely: she added lightness, openness, but also depth and complexity. It’s incredibly cool that she put so much care into those parts.”
