it’s a wonderfully lucid piece of songwriting, emotion lingering on each note. ( Clash)

I’ll Cry is the latest single to be taken from America, the debut solo album by Juanita Stein, and is available now to stream and for fans pre-ordering the album ahead of its 28th July release (Nude Records). Stein, who is already well known as the singer / songwriter with Howling Bells, recorded the album with Gus Seyffert (Beck, Ryan Adams) in Los Angeles, and I’ll Cry gives an alluring glimpse into the record. Stein has also just announced a brace of UK shows, in Brighton (1st August) and London (2nd Aug) to coincide with the album’s release.


Says Stein: “I’ll Cry is a musical ode to the all American greats I took my cues from as a budding songwriter. Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline and the work of Phil Spector, all of whom made a significant imprint on my heart, I’m forever channeling that soulful sadness. I’ll Cry is a song that speaks of an impossible love, his resistance, her infatuation. Never a happy ending.”
