  • Part of an exciting new series from Melville House UK, FUTURES, which will present imaginative future visions on a wide range of subjects, written by experts, academics, journalists and leading pop-culture figures.

  • Kristin Hersh is one of the most revered and respected songwriters of the last four decades, and regularly tours the UK with Throwing Muses, 50FootWave, and solo.

  • The first wave of the series, released in February 2024, will also contain The Future of War Crimes Justice, The Future of Trust and The Future of Wales.

Over a long, hot Christmas in Australia, Throwing Muses frontwoman and critically acclaimed solo artist Kristin Hersh considers her future as a songwriter. Is it possible to create music and not show off about it? How can artists establish and refine a following without becoming part of the commercial problem? And just how many times is it healthy to watch It's A Wonderful Life in three weeks?

In The Future of Songwriting, Hersh chooses to interrogate these questions through philosophical dialogue. From in-depth conversations with a comedian friend about the similarities between songs and jokes, via a fruitful visit to Sydney's 'bone museums', to a revelation from an acupuncturist in New Orleans, she delivers a fierce, funny and existential meditation on the art of the song – and its future.
