Berlin artist Jennifer Touch returns with her second album, Midnight Proposals, set for release via Fat Cat Recordings on February 18th. Out today, the industrial and minimalist second single “Gudrun” was named after Touch’s grandma, a child of war who was forced to abandon many dreams.

Touch had this to say on it:

“My grandma Gudrun’s parents were given a piece of land after the 2nd world war, and her father built the house she is still living in today at nearly 90. After a happy childhood her parents died young from diseases, and she was all alone in this sanctuary/cage, controlled by society’s rules. I have this image of her as a young women, escaping this tiny house in the dead of night and seeking a freedom she’d never felt before. Before she knew it, her window of opportunity was gone.”
