SOAK (Northern Ireland singer/songwriter Bridie Monds-Watson) has announced a new album, Grim Town, and shared a video for its new single, "Knock Me Off My Feet." Grim Town is due out April 26 via Rough Trade. It includes "Everybody Loves You," which she shared back in October and was one of our Songs of the Week (she also shared a video for the song). Below is the Jak Payne-directed video for "Knock Me Off My Feet," which features Monds-Watson as a racecar driver, followed by the album's tracklist and SOAK's upcoming tour dates.

Grim Town is SOAK's second album, the follow-up to 2015's debut, Before We Forgot How to Dream. Back then she was only 19 years old, now of course she's older (22) and likely wiser.

In a press release, Monds-Watson says that the central premise of Grim Town is "a dystopia that I've created in my brain: me on the inside, processed into a pretend location. The way I could wrap my head around a lot of what I was going through was to make it feel like something quite physical and real. Once I had the idea of the album being an actual location, exploring the dynamics of this town and what it would look or sound like felt like the right way to give my mental state a personality."

Back in December SOAK also shared a cover of Chris Rea's "Driving Home for Christmas," via a video of her performing the song.
