Emma Louise Lilac EverythingYou can’t accuse Emma Louise of making the same album three times.

The Australian singer-songwriter teamed up with Canada’s Tobias Jesso Jr (who has written hits with Sia, Adele and Florence + the Machine) to create this album, which showcases her new vocal sound. It’s sultry, soulful and almost androgynous, and the result is deep and dark – just check out Falling Apart and Shadowman.

Emma Louise tells the tale of the album’s genesis in Mexico: “If I could paint a picture of myself tonight, it would be the deepest shade of blue … So I took a flight to Mexico because I just felt so lost.” Lost and found. Lilac Everything is stunning.

Lilac Everything: A Project By Emma Louise is out September 14 via Liberation.
