Squirrel Flower, the Chicago based project of Ella Williams, is releasing a new album, Tomorrow’s Fire, on October 13 via Polyvinyl. Now she has shared another song from it, “Intheskatepark.” Listen below, followed by Squirrel Flower’s upcoming tour dates.

Williams had this to say about the song in a press release: “I wrote this song in 2019 on a little toy synthesizer. To me, this song is everlasting summer—even as things change, seasons, feelings, relationships, you can still try and feel the perfect lightness of summer, of a new crush, of a pop riff. It’s best listened to while biking around in the sunshine.”

When Tomorrow’s Fire was announced in July, Squirrel Flower shared videos for its two lead singles, “Full Time Job” and “When a Plant is Dying.” “When a Plant is Dying” made a special Songs of the Week playlist. In August she shared its next single, “Alley Light,” which was one of our Songs of the Week.

Tomorrow’s Fire was self produced at Drop of Sun Studios alongside engineer Alex Farrar (Wednesday, Indigo de Souza, Snail Mail). She also assembled a studio band that included Matt McCaughan (Bon Iver), Seth Kauffman (Angel Olsen band), Jake Lenderman (MJ Lenderman, Wednesday), and Dave Hartley (The War on Drugs).

In 2021, Williams released her EP Planet which features a cover of Björk’s 1997 song “Unravel.”
