It's a chilling, highly affecting release...

Arlo Parks has placed new single 'Black Dog' online.

The word-smith seems able to rouse the emotions like few other new artists, producing nuanced, highly powerful work in the process.

New single 'Black Dog' is online now, and it comes a matter of weeks after Arlo was named an ambassador for CALM.

Out now, it's a beautiful return, with that carefully etched vocal having a painterly touch.

A song that documents "the feeling of helplessness that comes along with watching a loved one suffer", it's an emotionally charged release.

Arlo explains: "It's supposed to make people who are struggling feel less isolated and start a conversation surrounding the prevalence of mental health issues in today's world."

Tune in now.
