Ahead of releasing her sophomore album this fall, SATE has returned with a new single. "Howler" can be heard in the player below.

"Howler" is a smouldering bit of blues rock that will appear on SATE's forthcoming LP The Fool, set for release on November 4. SATE explains that the song, as its artwork implies, "speaks to the strength, sensuality and Divine Feminine of The Empress in the tarot," a full-throated rejection of "the people and systems that attempt to tame our wild as women." 

In a statement, she adds, "The song was written after a night I can't quite remember at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, Germany, I wrote this song with my newfound friend, Adaline, from a voice note of a guitar riff from my guitarist, Kirt. She and I were both playing the festival and we instantly hit it off."

The Fool follows SATE's 2016 full-length debut RedBlack&Blue, which brought her to Exclaim! HQ the year prior to perform that album's "What Did I Do."

"I can't believe the journey this album has taken me on and the fact that I'm finally ready to share it with the world," SATE shared of her latest. "I finished it, put it on hold, opened it (and myself) up again, to finally take my own Fool's leap. This album is vital to me. It's a reflection on the risks I take to live fully while experiencing both victory and tumult, and the spaces in between where I learn resilience. Ultimately, this album is for the Fool in all of us."
