Published Jul 08, 2014After a long wait, Jenny Lewis is finally close to the release of her new album The Voyager. If its title track is any indication, the release will be well worth the wait.
Simple enough at first, "The Voyager" pairs Lewis's fantastic, timeless singing voice with a strummed acoustic guitar. As it unfolds, however, the song reveals multiple layers of strong sonic choices, from cinematic strings through mind-bending synths, sparse steel drums and uplifting harmonies. It's a giant, sweeping anthem with some serious staying power.
Listen to "The Voyager" below. The album of the same name will arrive on July 29.
