Artist To Watch Squirrel Flower, aka Ella Williams, released her third studio album, Planet (i), earlier this year. Now, Williams has announced a follow-up EP, Planet, out in January next year. Along with the news, Williams has shared two songs: “ruby at dawn” and a cover of Björk’s Homogenic track “unravel.”

“I’ve always felt that the pieces and process and secrets behind a finished record are the most important parts,” Williams says of Planet. “Most of these songs showcase my own production and exact vision, my first time in a long time releasing music that I’ve produced alone. Releasing this EP is an exercise in self trust and experimentation. Not all songs need to be precious and kept for the exact right time, not all recordings need to be perfect.”

Listen to “ruby at dawn” and “unravel” below. Squirrel Flower’s 2022 tour dates are also below.
