​Julien Baker Announces Sophomore LP 'Turn Out the Lights,' Shares New Single
Julien Baker impressed with her 2015 offering Sprained Ankle (as well as an appearance on Exclaim! TV), and now the Memphis-born singer-songwriter has announced plans for a new record. Turn Out the Lights marks her sophomore full-length, and it's due out on October 27 via Matador.
 
The new LP was self-produced by Baker at Ardent Studios in her hometown, and it hears the artist expanding her sonic scope, while maintaining confessional songwriting style.
