Austra feat. Cecile Believe – Mountain Baby

1 May, Katie Austra Stelmanis will release her fourth album HiRUDiN, the follow-up to 2017โ€™s Future Politics. Mountain Baby is the third single to come out ahead of it. It features a children’s choir from Wilkinson Public School in Toronto, where Austra’s mother teaches. The other female voice on the track is Cecile Believeโ€™s, who relocated to Los Angeles from Montreal in 2017. Most prominent, however, is a beautiful, almost hypnotic piano melody, which highlights Austraโ€™s parts.

Stelmanis points out: โ€œMountain Baby explores the different stages of a breakup. Surrounded by a feeling of unknown and grounded only by a hidden sense to move forward (the choir), weโ€™re also reminded through flashbacks of both the uncertainty and resistance we experienced in the relationship (Katie), as well as the pure, unbridled joy (Cecile).โ€
