LISTEN: My Brightest Diamond Shares New Single, Announces Upcoming Record(s) Plus Tour Details

Shara Worden, who performs solo under the moniker My Brightest Diamond, has released her new single "Pressure." If the booming track weren't enough, the singer-songwriter announced that she'll not be releasing only one album this fall, but an accompanying EP. Oh, and she will be going on a worldwide tour to support the delectable offerings. 


Worden's haunting operatic vocals stand in the forefront of "Pressure," overtop hypnotic percussion, twinkling bells and towering synths. Inspired by the sense of community in high school marching bands, the single is just a taste of how Worden took the concept of something three-dimensional and condensed it into an album that is equally impactful for This Is My Hand.


You can stream "Pressure" below while you impatiently await the July 15 release of None More Than You EP to hold you off until This Is My Hand, out September 16. You can preorder the full-length album here.
