Jenny Lewis, front (wo)man of the late 90s/early 2000s indie rock group Rilo Kiley is back in business. The singer's third solo LP The Voyager, out July 29th, was co-produced by Ryan Adams and recorded by Beck in his Malibu home studio. Lewis told Rolling Stone that "Many of the songs on The Voyager came out of the need to occupy my mind in the moments when I just couldn't shut down" following the breakup of Rilo Kiley.
In the words of Pitchfork contributor Lindsay Zoladz, "In a culture that expects women to be happy, shiny objects, sadness can become its own form of defiance." Lewis both laments and subverts these cultural norms with her introspective lyrics and the passionate twang we've all come to love. Listen to the album's title track below:
