Arlo Parks shares 'Devotion', the final teaser track from her new sophomore album

"A song about feeling so in love it’s almost like being ripped apart..."

Arlo Parks shares the final offering in the rollout for her highly-anticipated sophomore album 'My Soft Machine', out tomorrow (May 26). 

Following previously released singles 'Blades' and 'Weightless', the new offering, titled 'Devotion', paints a vivid picture of an intense burning love and is one of the singer's favourite songs she's made so far. 

Speaking about the meaning behind the new single, Arlo shares: "'Devotion' to me is a song about feeling so in love it’s almost like being ripped apart, there’s an intensity, a wildness and a tenderness. This is one of my favourite songs I’ve ever made, it draws from the bands that made me fall in love with music from Deftones to Yo La Tengo to Smashing Pumpkins to My Bloody Valentine."

'Devotion' is accompanied by an Ali Raymond and Joel Barney (Sonder Films) directed visual, about which she comments: “The music video for 'Devotion' had to feel sweaty and nostalgic and loose. The surreal bluish hue, the sense of feral joy in the performance, the blur and the band - I wanted to pay homage to 90s rock music and the notion of loving so hard it almost destroys you”.
