“This disconcerting time allowed JennyLee to ‘access the depths’ of her creativity in ways she had never been able to before. Letting go of ‘old baggage and energy’, JennyLee has created an album that embodies her present-day self, laced with long-existing pent up emotions that were inaccessible to her until recently.”

Warpaint will return with their first album in six years this May, ‘Radiate Like This’. They recently shared its first single, ‘Champion‘.

Following the album’s release, Warpaint are set to head out on a UK and European headline tour this summer, ending with a set at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound festival.
