Watch Julien Baker Play New Song “Funeral Pyre”

Julien Baker brought the sensitive folk music to NPR Music’s Tiny Desk performance series that led us to name her a best new band and landed her debut album, Sprained Ankle, among our 50 best from last year. She did two tracks from that record, the title track and “Something,” plus a new one that she jokingly referred to as “sad song 11,” but has since been given the proper name of “Funeral Pyre.” It’s just as somber and melodic as the rest of Baker’s output so far, and you can watch her perform it around 3m30s in the video below.

Sprained Ankle is out now via 6131 Records. Read our interview with her.
