Published May 15, 2014It's been six years since singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis issued her last solo album Acid Tongue, but back in January she hinted at a return, telling Rolling Stone that her new LP was in the mixing stages. Today, more details on the release have emerged.
In a new interview with Charleston City Paper, Lewis revealed that the album is called Voyager.
She went on to explain that she's been scrutinizing the songs for years. "I worked on these songs for a long time so there's no stone unturned, lyrically," she said. "I thought about them while walking on the mountain near my house. I thought about them while flying on airplanes. I thought about them while lying awake with terrible insomnia. I finished them standing in line at Vons. While I was brushing my teeth. I was obsessed. So I feel like they're done. My poem is finished."
Though she had originally hinted at a spring release for the album, it looks as if it will actually arrive this summer. Lewis's artist page on the Austin City Limits festival site [via Consequence of Sound] suggests that Voyager will arrive in July via Warner Bros.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
