The album is titled Complex, and comes three years after her decorated (Top 5, ARIA-winning) debut Glorious Heights. It’ll explore themes of escape, self-realisation, isolation, and “distorted love narratives”.
The single is Ready, and Montaigne describes it thusly:
“To me the song is about this political moment, where humanity is starting to realise how actually cooked this planet is, that it never had to be like this, and that we have the power now to overthrow those who’ve forced us into this corner. It’s music that I’m proud of representing, because I think that it reflects the feelings swirling around the current political sh-tfest my generation is facing, and it attempts to transform the anxiety amongst those feelings into angry power. It’s like a fuel source.”
