It’s been three years (+ one week) since Joanna Newsom shared the followup to her 2004 debut and our #29 album of the Decade, The Milk-Eyed Mender, with the release of equally critically successful Ys. Needless to say, this post is long overdue.
It now appears that a Joanna Newsom studio album, her third overall, will be here before we know it (via TFB). And this super duper news all stems from one simple blurb found at the bottom of a spread in this month’s W magazine concerning her sensible fashion. It reads the following: She recently finished work on a new album.
The details stop there, but previous rumors had the album due out on Drag City. What’s more, Newsom also has an upcoming trip to Australia scheduled for a few live performances. So, we should know more fairly soon.
