(AUS) It’s been four years since the Indigo Girls released a new studio album. On June 12, their much-anticipated release One Lost Day will be available on Vanguard Records/Caroline Australia.
With the help of visionary new producer Jordan Brooke Hamlin (Lucy Wainwright Roche) and mixer Brian Joseph (Bon Iver, Kathleen Edwards, Sufjan Stevens), Amy Ray and Emily Sailers have created a landscape of truly original sounds and stories ranging from stark intimacy to bombastic pop and grind.
One Lost Day was recorded in studios in Nashville, TN and mixed at Justin Vernon’s April Base Studios in Fall Creek, WI. Musicians Brady Blade and Carol Isaacs from the Indigo Girls’ Beauty Queen Sister returned, along with Indigo Girls’touring band. Additionally, Amy and Emily brought in Lex Price (K.D. Lang, Mindy Smith) Butterfly Boucher (Missy Higgins), Fred Eltringham (Sheryl Crowe, The Walflowers) and Chris Donohue (Dave Matthews, Lucinda Williams, Robert Plant) to bring a good dose of infectious energy and creativity to the scene.
On One Lost Day, musicality, whimsy, rawness, sadness and joy move through each of the 13 tracks. This theme is most evident on the first single “Happy In The Sorrow Key”, written by Amy Ray, which you can listen to here. Indigo Girls’ One Lost Day is out on May 29 (digital) and June 12 (CD and vinyl) through Vanguard/Caroline Australia.
