Jenny Lewis Releases New Album “On The Line”: Streaming
- American singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis released her long-awaited fourth studio album “On The Line” on March 22, 2019. It is her first LP in five years.
Before the release of the album, she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she performed the first single “Red Bull & Hennessy” and the latest single “Wasted Youth” from the album.
On the album, she teamed up with an all-star roster of musicians like Beck, Ringo Starr, Benmont Tench, Don Was, Jim Keltner, and old collaborator Ryan Adams.
She dedicate the album to the memory of her mother, who passed away in 2017, in which especially the 8th track "Little White Dove".
"My mom she was an addict and struggled with the disease of addiction for her entire life," she told NPR. "These relationships with our parents are so potent and complex. And reaching the end of life and being able to see someone go through that process is so intimate. And really, the song is about the little white dove showing up with love and forgiveness and understanding and peace."
She said of the album, “Well music, for me, is when I feel most connected to the cosmos or the best version of myself. It's not always light stuff, but I think when you're making your soul music, it can get ugly sometimes. But the joy for me, is in the creation and the collaboration and the process. Then, the catharsis on tour, being able to feel these songs and finally understand the meaning. Standing in front of a couple hundred people, sometimes it occurs to me what it was that I meant. ... And I think we, as artists, open that channel and it's a little bit magical.”
