Jenny Lewis Announces New Album “Joy'All”, Shares New Song “Psychos”
American singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis announced her fifth studio album “Joy'All” would be released on June 9, 2023.
It is her first album in four years since the 2019 album “On the Line”. Also, it is her first album under her new label Blue Note/Capitol Records.
The album comprises 10-track, including the 2021 single “Puppy and a Truck”, produced by Dave Cobb.
Jenny Lewis said in a statement, “I started writing some of these songs on the road, pre-pandemic... and then put them aside as the world shut down, and then from my home in Nashville in early 2021, I joined a week-long virtual songwriting workshop with a handful of amazing artists, hosted by Beck. The challenge was to write one song every day for seven days, with guidelines from Beck. The guidelines would be prompts like 'write a song with 1-4-5 chord progression,' 'write a song with only cliches,' or 'write in free form style.' The first song I submitted to the group was 'Puppy and a Truck.'”
- Also, the album is inspired by Nashville songwriter Skeeter Davis.
She said, “I wanted to riff on the classic Nashville album cover, with the song titles on the front. The cover photo is a reference to a Skeeter Davis record and I'm wearing her costume!”
From the album, she unveiled a new song “Psychos” on March 29, 2023.
The track was written by Jenny Lewis and produced by Dave Cobb.
She said of working with Dave Cobb, “Dave works fast and we cut the bulk of the record with his incredible house band – Nate Smith, Brian Allen and Cobb on guitar, and myself on acoustic guitar & vocals – live on the floor in a couple of weeks. Jess Wolfe came back to the studio to provide background vocals on the record and then Greg Leisz and Jon Brion added pedal steel, B-Bender guitar and Chamberlin, respectively, back in L.A..”
