Brooklyn singer Jessie Kilguss has released the second single, Sleepwalking Heart, from her forthcoming new full-length What Do Whales Dream About at Night?, due for release on September 24, her first new album since The Fastness came out four years ago.

She wrote it in 2018 for the Bushwick Book Club, a long running event where artists are invited to write a song about the same book, in this case Mira Jacob's debut novelThe Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing. The track is about loss and hanging on to small tokens after a fire wreaked havoc on the lifes of the characters in the book. Orchestral pop that goes straight for the gut.

Sleepwalking Heart is a self-released single. Buy it from her website.

Live dates:
  • 08/23 Pete’s Candy Store, Brooklyn, NY
    | (w/ Gary Burton and the Highland Shatners)
  • 09/24 Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 3, Brooklyn, NY
    (album release show)
