Waxahatchee Reveals 'Ivy Tripp' Album, Shares New Song

Waxahatchee Reveals 'Ivy Tripp' Album, Shares New Song
As promised, Katie Crutchfield's Waxahatchee project will return with a new album in 2015. Today, the artist has shared details of the LP.

The new album is called Ivy Tripp, and the artist explains in the press release that the title is "really just a term I made up for directionless-ness, specifically of the 20-something, 30-something, 40-something of today, lacking regard for the complaisant life path of our parents and grandparents," adding, "I have thought of it like this: Cerulean Salt is a solid and Ivy Tripp is a gas."

She also said the album's running theme "is steadying yourself on shaky ground and reminding yourself that you have control in situations that seem overwhelming, or just being cognizant in moments of deep confusion or sadness, and learning to really feel emotions and to grow from that...."

In addition to the album announcement, Waxahatchee will embark on a world tour that includes Canadian stops in Toronto and Montreal. The full slate of shows is available below.

Ivy Tripp will arrive on April 7 via Merge Records, and you can listen to the new album track "Air" at the bottom of the page.
