Waxahatchee announces Great Thunder EP, shares “Chapel of Pines”: Stream

on July 17, 2018, 10:18am

Just over a year removed from her last album, Out in the StormWaxahatchee is back with a new EP. Entitled Great Thunder, the six-track effort is out September 7th via Merge Records.

Great Thunder takes both its name and material from Katie Crutchfield project with former Swearin’ member and Waxahatchee co-producer Keith Spencer. The duo released two albums of experimental music, 2012’s Sounds of Great Thunder and 2013’s Groovy Kind of Love, right around the time Crutchfield was working on Waxahatchee LPs, Cerulean Salt and Ivy Tripp. Alongside producer Brad Cook at Justin Vernon’s April Base studio, she’s reimagined some of the songs from the now-inactive band for this new EP.

“I would say that it is a complete 180 from the last record: super stripped-down, quiet, and with me performing solo, it’s a throwback to how I started,” Crutchfield says in a press release. “Overall, the EP is a warm, kind of vibey recording.”

As a first listen, Waxahatchee has shared the Christopher Good-direcred video for “Chapel of Pines”. Also starring Kevin Morby, you can watch the clip below.

Pre-orders for Great Thunder are going on now. Find the album art and tracklist ahead.
