“In what felt like a blink of an eye, everything opened up and here we were, hermit heathens, given keys to the city,” adds the creative, who now unveils the first single off of her upcoming album of the same name. A single with which she connects perfectly with what many of us have felt in recent years, in which we have abruptly gone from not being able to interact with others or leave our homes to having countless plans and opportunities. This sudden change requires us to take care of our mental health and take the necessary time to adapt to the new context.
Currently based in Brooklyn, Joan is currently working on her next album Overstimulated (a follow-up to Windborne and Still EP) produced by Carrtoons. The album features notable collaborators such as Jake Sherman. The artist combines this project, which comes after having released singles like Free – Radio Exit or Slow It Down, with being a music mentor with the non-profit SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young, where she works with youth, people from 8 to 18 years old, who stutter.
