Portland based songwriter Alela Diane has released her new single ‘Paloma’. Produced by Tucker Martine, the single is the second of two tracks to be release by Diane in June 2022, following earlier single ‘Howling Wind’. The new music comes four years after the release of Diane’s sixth studio album Cusp, and the reissue of Diane’s mythical second album, The Pirate’s Gospel, which has gone on to sell over 100,000 copies.
Speaking about the new single, Diane says “‘Paloma’ was written down in Mexico during a violent thunderstorm that took out the power for a few days. It is a musing on the volatility of the systems we build, and the knowledge that nature always gets the last word.”
Alela Diane is a Portland, Oregon based singer-songwriter who grew up in the winding rivers and golden hillsides of Nevada City, California. As a child, she listened to her parents harmonise bluegrass songs in the kitchen and began writing her own sings when she moved to San Francisco at the age of nineteen.
