Will is a late afternoon thunderstorm, a cathartic collision of sharp and soft textures that sounds looming and restorative all at once.

Barwick’s life over the past several years has largely been lived in transit, and as such the genesis of Will was not beholden to location; Barwick worked on the album in a variety of locales, from a desolate house in upstate New York to the Moog Factory in Asheville, North Carolina to Lisbon, Portugal.
“You’re constantly adjusting, assimilating, and finding yourself in life-changing situations,” says Julianna about touring. The tracks on Will represent this dynamic: “I knew I’d be playing these songs live, so I wanted some movement.” –Julianna Barwick
Will features Thomas Arsenault (aka Mas Ysa), Dutch cellist Maarten Vos, and sometime Chairlift drummer Jamie Ingalls. The first single, Nebula, showcases a video directed by Derrick Belcham.
“While making this record, there were moments of isolation and dark currents:
“I like exploring that, and I love when I come across songs that sound scary or ominous. I’ve always been curious about what goes into making a song that way.” –Barwick
