Juliana Hatfield - "Mouthful of Blood"

Juliana Hatfield has been shockingly prolific as of late. She's been averaging a new album every year since 2017, and she's set to release a new album in May. The first single from that album, "Mouthful of Blood," is going to be adored by anyone who's even had a passing interest in Hatfield over the past three decades. "Mouthful of Blood" is both gritty and melodic. It truly sounds like it could be from any period of Hatfield's career. The song has the edge of her 90's releases while keeping the mature side of her more recent work. 

Hatfield explains the songs on the new album: “I think these songs are a reaction to how seriously and negatively a lot of people have been affected by the past four years. But it’s fun, musically. There’s a lot of playing around. I didn’t really have a plan when I started this project.”

You can listen to "Mouthful of Blood" below. Blood is due out May 14 on American Laundromat Records. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Juliana Hatfield, check out the artist's website.
