Stream: Jenny Lewis’ new album The Voyager

on July 20, 2014, 11:31pm

Singer-songwriter and former Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis will release her third solo album, The Voyager, on July 29th via Warner Bros. Records. In anticipation, it’s streaming in full over at NPR.

The follow-up to 2009’s Acid Tongue was produced by Ryan Adams and his collaborator/partner Mike Viola, with additional contributions from Beck and Lewis’ boyfriend/bandmate Jonathan Rice. Lewis began writing the album following the break-up of Rilo Kiley and the death of her estranged father.

“Making The Voyager got me through one of the most difficult periods of my life,” Lewis said in a statement. “After Rilo Kiley broke up and a few really intense personal things happened, I completely melted down. It nearly destroyed me. I had such severe insomnia that, at one point, I didn’t sleep for five straight nights. 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.”

A press release calls the album “Lewis’ most deeply personal album to date,” adding, “The Voyager finds the always relatable songwriter at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent experiences with honesty and incisiveness.”

The album is preceded by two singles, “Just One of the Guys” and the title track.
