This record marks a major shift for me, says Pieta Brown. The songs mirror so many transitions: in my musical life, in my home life, in my creative life, in my country. Ive been hovering at a crossroads, and Im pretty sure Im not the only one.
Recorded at Justin Vernons April Base studio and co-produced by Bon Iver drummer and acclaimed solo artist S. Carey, Browns lush new album, Freeway, is an utterly mesmerizing collection, a delicate yet forceful reckoning with change thats marked by the push and pull of unabashed intimacy and a slow-burning intensity. Brown cut the album live in just three days with an all-star band that included Carey, bassist Mike Lewis (Bon Iver, Andrew Bird), and guitarist Jeremy Ylvisaker (Andrew Bird, Alpha Consumer), and the resulting recordings reflect the foursomes seemingly telepathic bond, a deeply organic chemistry fueled by a shared passion for emotional exploration and sonic discovery. Due out this fall on Ani DiFrancos Righteous Babe Records, Freeway is Browns most experimental collection to date, but its also her most confident and direct, an honest accounting of bittersweet endings and hopeful beginnings, of painful loss and traces of liberation in the aftermath, all captured here with a raw spontaneity and fierce self-assurance.
