Lande Hekt has announced her debut solo album Going To Hell, due for release on 22nd January 2021 via Queer-run independent record label Get Better Records.
“I’m no stranger to queer punk and queer politics. I’ve always taken a special interest for obvious reasons, but this record is important to me because it’s the first time I’m releasing anything as an outwardly gay person,” says Hekt about the album, which represents a time when she was coming out as gay.
The album was recorded by Ben David (of The Hard Aches) in the Adelaide Hills and Whiskey is the first single to be released from it. Speaking about the track Hekt explains: “This song is essentially about how there were so many things that didn’t feel right in my life. It’s about learning how to come to terms with being gay or, more accurately, realising that pretending you’re not gay can’t go on forever.”
