Arlo Parks has returned with her second single of the year, this time sharing ‘Black Dog’ (via Transgressive) — which follows in the footsteps of ‘Eugene’. Over the space of approximately 18 months, Arlo Parks has left listeners moved with her poignant words and ‘Black Dog’ is yet another beautiful addition to her remarkable collection of releases.

Her reflective number was inspired by a feeling of helplessness after watching a loved one face mental health battles. She said, “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.” Along with sharing the single, she also recently became an ambassador for CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).
