Story by Jack Foley

THE second song to be released from harpist, pianist, singer-songwriter Mikaela Davis’ debut album Delivery (out July 13, 2018 via Rounder Records) is out now.

Other Lover is a floating, twisting, exploration of a relationship gone sour with a tight groove and a dusting of psych, all held together with Mikaela’s sparkling harp.

To mark the release, Davis has also confirmed a series of UK tour dates for October 2018.

The dates are…

1 – London, Omeara
2 – Manchester, Soup Kitchen
3 – Leeds, Brudenell Social Club
4 – Glasgow, Hug & Pint
5 – Bristol, Louisiana

Commenting on the new single, Davis said: “Other Lover was written about four years ago in Nashville with Konrad Snyder and Jeremy Lutito. As I recall, we only had a few hours to write before I continued on a tour.

“The song came together rather quickly, and my manager called all excited when he got the demo. At the time I wasn’t sure I could pull off singing the song, but it’s been a staple in my set ever since! We recorded a whole record together but it was shelved. Other Lover is the one track that made it to Delivery. I’m so excited to finally share it with you!”

Having previously toured with Bon Iver, San Fermin, The Staves and more, Mikaela is currently wrapping up a month-long, sold out national tour with Lake Street Dive and has announced her full band album release show at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn on July 26, along with a fall UK and European run.
