Katie Bejsiuk Drops New Single From Upcoming Album ”Feels Right”

Katie Bejsiuk (fka Free Cake For Every Creature) shares “Feels Right” the new single from her anticipated debut album, The Woman on the Moon, out June 24th on Double Double Whammy. Of the song Katie says “In ‘Feels Right’ I lean into the inexpressibility of my instincts and feelings rather than trying to name, rationalize, or trap them. I’m excited about the way the music reflects this meandering, amorphous venture, and I especially had fun plunking on a friend’s piano with the windows open.”

The name Bejsiuk is the singer-songwriter’s original surname: her father, a first generation American with parents from Ukraine, changed it before she was born. By reclaiming the name for her solo project, the first new music we’ve heard from Katie since Free Cake disbanded in 2019, she has conjoined with a shadow version of herself who holds hands with her past, present, and future. And with the release of her debut album listeners are offered the most wholly version of Katie yet.

Last month Katie Bejsiuk announced The Woman on the Moon with “Onion Grass,” the album’s lead single.

The Woman on the Moon gently nods to the pre-band days of Free Cake—when it was just Katie and her guitar—but with a musical evolution cultivated from years of self-inquiry during which her confidence, direction, and self-possession bloomed. Whereas Free Cake buoyantly focused on the ecstatic wonders and wounds of youth in real time, Katie Bejsiuk pans out with wisdom and retrospection that comes with age. The Woman on the Moon is composed of 12 exquisite and refined songs that evoke the sensory through introspective lyrics and salve the heart with Katie’s tranquilizing, cadenced vocals that devoted fans have clung to for over a decade.
