Jessica Lea Mayfield is in the midst of a three-month tour in support of her confessional fourth album, Sorry Is Gone, and today releases the video for “Offa My Hands“.
Sorry Is Gone released in fall 2017 via ATO and is a raw document of a woman in progress; one weathering cruel storms but finally able to blame the rain itself for the flood. Written as the truth of her own poisonous marriage unfolded before her eyes, Sorry Is Gone is a record of permission. Permission to create freely, to escape what is no longer safe and to stop bearing responsibility for things done to her, not by her. This is none more evident than in the video for “Offa My Hands”, filmed at The Salton Sea, dead fish and all.
“What a dream to make this strange video in such an interesting place,” says JLM.

Jessica Lea Mayfield might make some people uncomfortable with the level of honesty she projects on her forthcoming LP, Sorry Is Gone, but she’s not going to apologize –for that, or for anything else on her complex, confessional fourth album. Recorded with producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile, Dinosaur Jr.), Sorry Is Gone has gained accolades from The New York Times, NPR Music, Billboard, a cover story in Native, and more.
