Melbourne singer Sarah Mary Chadwick has announced a new album, ‘Me And Ennui Are Friends, Baby’, set for release roughly a year after her latest LP’s arrival.

The album will be released on February 5, 2021 through Rice Is Nice. In addition to the album announcement, Chadwick has shared the lead single, ‘Every Loser Needs A Mother’, along with the accompanying music video.

‘Me And Ennui Are Friends, Baby’ is the follow-up to Chadwick’s January album, ‘Please Daddy’. The album was given a four-star review by NME upon its release, saying, “While the intimacy of the songs makes this a challenging listen, there is a humbling bravery here”.

The album was also included in NME’s list of the best Australian albums for the first half of 2020.
