Jessica Pratt "Back, Baby"

Jessica Pratt "Back, Baby"

Coming off the recent announcement of Jessica Pratt's new On Your Own Love Again LP, the California folk singer has unveiled an gentle, early a.m. acoustic strummer from the set called "Back, Baby."

Jazz chords plucked from a nylon-string guitar settle into a percussion-less bossa nova rhythm, with Pratt's confident, Stevie Nicks-styled whispers weighing in on the myth of love, putting the past in the past, and considering relationship foibles ("you better reconsider all the love you took and cast aside").

Pratt, meanwhile, comes back to stereo speakers January 27 once Drag City drops her On Your Own Love Again into retailers.
