Joy Williams will release new album Front Porch on 3rd May via Sensibility/Thirty Tigers.
Available to pre-order now, Front Porch features 12 songs and fans who do pre-order will receive the title track, Canary and The Trouble With Wanting as immediate downloads. Take a listen to Front Porch below:
Front Porch is produced by Kenneth Pattengale of The Milk Carton Kids and engineered by Matt Ross-Spang. The album was recorded in Nashville while Williams was pregnant with her second child.
Williams says, “There is an energy that is very creative in having a baby. It gives a sense of urgency on top of all the creative energy.”
“So much of this is about coming home. Whether to a physical place or to yourself. The lines on my face, I can see them more clearly now. But a lot of them are laugh lines. This record feels like breathing more deeply into who I am. Come what may.”
