Jamila Woods has announced a new album. Her next record is titled Water Made Us and it’s out October 13 via Jagjaguwar. She’s shared the record’s first single, “Tiny Garden,” which features duendita. Check out the video for “Tiny Garden” and the full tracklist to Water Made Us below.

Water Made Us is Woods’ third LP, the follow-up to 2019’s Legacy! Legacy! In a press release, Woods shared a statement about “Tiny Garden” and its accompanying visual:

“Tiny Garden” is a song about the way my heart works, the slow and steady way I love. In my directorial debut, I wanted to create a visual representation of how I often feel in relationships, like I’m having huge feelings that I end up expressing in small specific ways. The video takes place across two landscapes, the reality of a shared apartment at the tail end of winter and an imagined “heartspace” where everything is lush and green. I worked with my friend and frequent collaborator Po Chop on the choreography, so that the movement becomes the key to merging these two worlds—everywhere I dance, something grows.

The new album takes its name from a quote by Toni Morrison, whose works have also inspired Woods’ song “Sula (Paperback)” and a chapbook of her poetry. Woods further expanded on the title:

Water Made Us feels like the most personal and vulnerable piece of art I’ve ever made. I love creating from source material, diving deep into a subject and extrapolating from what I discover. We sat in the house for two years and I became my own source material. Shout out to the therapists, the astrologers, the family members, and friends who listened, who helped me process and transform my journaled thoughts and questions into this body of work. I hope it feels like a playlist that carries you through the life cycle of a relationship, whatever stage of the journey your heart may be in.
