Tennessee alt-Americana artist Amythyst Kiah announced her upcoming album Wary + Strange—due out June 18—with a new single “Wild Turkey.”
Kiah’s single “Black Myself” that was released earlier this year will also be included on Wary + Strange.
“Wilk Turkey” is a beautiful but heartbreaking song about suicide. Here’s what Kiah said of the song on YouTube:
For a long time, I didn’t understand that when people commit suicide, it’s because they believe the world will be better off without them. I thought my mom did it because she didn’t really love or care about me and my dad, and I interpreted that as being abandoned. Writing this song was a way to make amends with what happened and to recognize that numbing myself wouldn’t work for me in the long run.
