Big Joanie share new single ‘In My Arms’, detail second album and UK tour

The long-awaited follow-up to 2018’s ‘Sistahs’ will be out in November

Big Joanie have returned with a cruisy new single titled ‘In My Arms’, sharing it alongside the announcement for their forthcoming second album and a nine-date headline tour in support of it.

Discussing the themes explored in the track, frontwoman Stephanie Phillips said in a statement: “At this point I was getting tired of living in London and dreaming about another life. It’s about knowing you should go another way in life but you end up dreaming about the road you’ve already travelled down even though you know it won’t take you where you need to go.”

Have a look at the music video for ‘In My Arms’, directed by Lydia Garnett, below:


‘In My Arms’ is the second single to be released from Big Joanie’s new album, following ‘Happier Still’ at the start of June. The album itself – the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Sistahs’ – is titled ‘Back Home’ and will be out on November 4 via Daydream Library Series (and Kill Rock Stars outside the UK and Europe). That release will be followed by a sprawling tour of the UK next January.
