Julien Baker Performs Live Her New Single – Faith Healer


The American singer and guitarist Julien Baker was the musical visitor on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on January 7th. She has performed live her new single called Faith Healer.

The tracks is from upcoming album titled Little Oblivions. Her third studio album will be released on February 26, 2021. Also, she said of the new song in last October;

Put most simply, I think that “Faith Healer” is a song about vices, both the obvious and the more insidious ways that they show up in the human experience. I started writing this song 2 years ago and it began as a very literal examination of addiction. For awhile, I only had the first verse, which is just a really candid confrontation of the cognitive dissonance a person who struggles with substance abuse can feel—the overwhelming evidence that this substance is harming you, and the counterintuitive but very real craving for the relief it provides. When I revisited the song I started thinking about the parallels between the escapism of substance abuse and the other various means of escapism that had occupied a similar, if less easily identifiable, space in my psyche.
