For 13 years Tucker and I have been making records in basements. I’ve never made a record in a proper studio. I’m so excited that we get to work at his new Flora Studio for my next album!

Happy New Year, friends!
In other big news, we are recording my next full-length record in Tucker’s studio starting March 6. We will be wrangling new friends and old into this. I’ve been writing away for quite some time. Though sometimes I feel like tearing my hair out, mostly I feel so grateful that writing and playing music is what I do for a living.
More on the record as it progresses. We hope to finish it before the baby comes (fingers quadruple crossed) and release it in late August on Raven Marching Band in North America and Bella Union everywhere else.
I’m excited to be a part of this benefit and to sing a duet with Colin Meloy. – Laura
