Experimental Folk Artist Jenny Parrott Shares New Single “The Other Cheek”

New LP Love Spell Out June 28

Austin’s experimental folk artist Jenny Parrott (she/they) has shared the single + video “The Other Cheek.” The serene track features Parrott’s impressive vocals backed by gentle guitar strums as lyrics grapple with unwarranted advice from an outside source.

Jenny explains, “The track explores what it feels like when people tell you to turn the other cheek – or change your emotions, or outlook, or to forgive – and the feeling of wanting to but also being uncertain about how.” The accompanying video, directed by Jillian Godshall, showcases found footage from vintage scenes, with each clip dreamily overlaid and filtered with a purple hue.

Jenny announced their new album Love Spell, set for release on June 28. An eclectic mix of enthralling vocals – both in English and Spanish – as well as a range of guitar, synth, and their prominent use of the omnichord, the album explores personal themes of Parrott’s life, from surviving toxic relationships to overcoming trauma, and at the end of the day, finding hope and love within oneself and all around.

Across their highly anticipated album Love Spell, Jenny Parrott reflects on a longing for love and connection throughout their life. Piecing together a collection of old and new works, the evocative project explores all forms of love: from platonic, to romantic, to spiritual, resulting in a yearning for a world with more unconditional, unabashed love. The creation of the project was partially funded by a creative grant from the city of Austin, TX, and was recorded in Parrott’s home studio, stealing away moments from their personal day to day to write and record in bits and pieces.
