Michaela Anne has released Child of the Wind, the latest single from her upcoming album Desert Dove, out on 27th September 2019 via Yep Roc Records.
The song is the follow-up to By Our Design, released back in June, and you can hear it below:
Anne recorded Desert Dove over the course of several weeks in San Clemente, California. She worked on the album with producers Sam Outlaw and Delta Spirit’s Kelly Winrich.
Musicians on the record include guitarist Brian Whelan (Dwight Yoakam, Jim Lauderdale), fiddler Kristin Weber (Kacey Musgraves, Margo Price), and drummers Mark Stepro (Ben Kweller, Butch Walker) and Daniel Bailey (Everest, Father John Misty).
Talking about the record Anne says, “This record, for me, highlights the gray area, the nuance of emotional life and relationships that seems to be harder to convey in today’s modes of communication and limited attention spans: short excerpts on Instagram or Twitter paragraphs,” says Michaela Anne. “Nothing is black and white, solely good or bad. Who we are, how we live, how we love, what we desire or reject, it’s all full of contradictions and confusions. I wanted to explore that through my songs with care, depth, reality as well as light-heartedness, fun and fantasy.”
Desert Dove is Anne’s full-length follow-up to her 2016 release Bright Lights and the Fame.
