Co-written and produced by Manchester Orchestra’s Andy Hull with engineering and instrumentation by Manchester Orchestra’s Robert McDowell, these eleven tracks stitch together a multi-dimensional pastiche of hurt, healing, loss, and love carried by hazy vocalizations and a patchwork of earthy alternative folk.
The lead single from the album, “let down,” recently debuted to widespread critical applause from Rolling Stone, USA Today, Idolator, Spin, Entertainment Weekly, and more. E! Online described it as “sumptuous alt-folk fantasy,” and Refinery29 called it “a feather-soft but haunting melody about the horror of a broken heart.” People summed it up best, “Paris Jackson is blazing her own path in the music industry.” In just two weeks, the single has amassed nearly 1.5 Million combined global streams, propelled by the stunning music video, which was executive produced by Eli Roth and directed by Meredith Alloway.
Other stand outs from the album include “eyelids” which pairs stark piano with powerful lyrics as she urges, “tear my heart out, so the feel of that memory is gone…now i don’t know your name,”
offset by Hull’s understated vocals.
Following an in-depth interview with the Associated Press, Paris features on the latest digital cover for FAULT Magazine released today. Next up, she will guest on NPR’s Weekend Edition, Sunday Nov 15th.

While Paris hails from one of the most successful families in music history, she is best known for her activism, acting & modeling work, the latter of which has seen her front campaigns for international brands like Calvin Klein, grace the cover of top fashion magazines, including numerous Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar titles, and make her runway debut earlier this year at Jean-Paul Gaultier’s final show. On the acting front, Paris has taken on several TV and film roles, collaborating with acclaimed industry professionals, including Lee Daniels, Charlize Theron, Joel Edgerton, and Rachel Winters. Aside from music, Paris’ biggest passion has always been in using her platform to shine light on causes important to her, notably going off script while presenting at the Grammy Awards and MTV VMAs, to highlight the Dakota Access Pipeline and events of racial injustice in Charlottesville, respectively. Paris also serves as an Ambassador for the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF) and is passionate about continuing her godmother’s legacy of ridding the stigma and finding a cure for the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
