Jesca Hoop is set to release of Born To, the first single from her new album The House That Jack Built, on June 11th.

Reflecting the album’s central themes - life and death, sex and war, head and heart - Born To asks the question – “how is it that I was
born into the circumstances I was born into. How is it some of us are born into famine and others into unimaginable wealth?”. The
lead track from The House That Jack Built and very much a statement of intent, Born To is a tempestuous, moodily melodic opener.

Currently on tour in the US supporting the Punch Brothers, Jesca has lined up a number of UK dates in support of her new album,
including a headlining show at London’s Bush Hall. Tickets are on sale now:

The follow up to 2009’s Hunting My Dress, The House That Jack Built deftly showcases its author’s unflinching tendency to pull focus from
widescreen to close-up. Part siren song, part grim warning, it achieves a perspective-warping balance between the haunting intimacy of
Hoop’s delivery and an unconfined air of horizon-scanning grandeur from the outset.

Admitting that writing the record was an often an insular, isolating experience Hoop found herself exploring topics as diverse as Greek
tragedies (Peacemaker), street artist Banksy (Ode To Banksy) and her often turbulent relationship with her father (DNR and the album’s title track).

Born To had it’s first play last night on uberfan Marc Riley’s 6music show and premiered via AOL Spinner in the US. The album has been
chosen by long time fan Peter Gabriel for the Bowers & Wilkins ‘Society Of Sound’ catalogue
