The new album from Waxahatchee, aka singer-songwriter Katie Crutchfield, is available to stream exclusively via NME.COM from today (March 30).
‘Ivy Tripp’ is released next week (April 6) but can be heard a week in advance via the SoundCloud player below.
The album is the follow up to 2013 album ‘Cerulean Salt’ and was recorded by producer Kyle Gilbride at Wherever Audio in Long Island. A full band tour of the UK and Ireland will take place in June. See below for full dates and ticket information.
Speaking about the album, Crutchfield stated that the songs reflected a period of indecision in her life. “My life has changed a lot in the last two years, and it’s been hard for me to process my feelings other than by writing songs,” she said. “I think a running theme [of ‘Ivy Tripp’] is steadying yourself on shaky ground and reminding yourself that you have control in situations that seem overwhelming.”
