Haley Bonar to Release Impossible Dream August 5, Stream “I Can Change” Now

Widely celebrated singer-songwriter Haley Bonar is expected to release her latest full length record “Impossible Dream” August 5th via GNDwire (US) / Spit Comet (CA) / Memphis Industries (UK + EU). The forthcoming record’s lead single “I Can Change” is available to stream now and can be done below. Regarding the single, Stereogum states that “the record’s lead single, is all about breaking out of repeating patterns, as the title suggests, and Bonar’s voice takes on a steely resolve against the rolling, woodsy instrumentation that beckons for forward momentum. ‘I could be so happy if I let myself be happy,’ she sings at one point. ‘But I’m too busy behaving for a crowd.’” The track can be streamed below. 

Speaking of release, Bonar said the following “Everybody wants a story. Something to sell. I’m here to tell you that there isn’t one with this album, at least in the traditional sense, but ten. Perhaps each of them contain more stories, sitting inside each other like nesting dolls. I could sit here and tell you that some of the songs are about growing up in the Black Hills. Some of the songs are about my parents. Some of the songs are about sexuality. Some of the songs are about loss of youth, teenage parenthood, the lines of social disorder for women, or the terror of jealousy and suspicion. But what I write is borne of my own set of memories and ideas, and once they are released into the world, they do not belong to me anymore. The interpretation is all yours, therefore these stories are yours. What I can tell you is this: My name is Haley Bonar (rhymes with “honor”). I’m 33 years old, a Taurus, and I live in Saint Paul, MN with my daughter Clementine. I also sing in a band called Gramma’s Boyfriend.”

BBC 6 Music have recently added the track to their rotation, and Apple Music added “Impossible Dream” to their A-List: Alternative Music playlist. In both the wake of the track release and the impending release of Impossible Dream, the singer songwriter has announced a string of tour dates throughout the US and Europe, with a list of dates provided below.

The term singer songwriter would be underselling Bonar’s talents, as she has truly become an innovator and an iconoclast throughout the past months and years. Impossible Dream is sure to be the subject of great anticipation and buzz before its August 5th release. A tracklist is provided below.
