Few songwriters capture the feelings of directionlessness and transition quite like Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield. Katie Crutchfield has announced a new Waxahatchee album, Ivy Tripp, out on April 7th from her new label, Merge Records. She produced her new record once again with Swearin members Kyle Gilbride and Keith Spencer, who both worked as co-producers on the last Waxahatchee album, “Cerulean Salt”. Along with the album announcement, she also shared a new track called “Air”.

Ivy Tripp has been described as a “developed and aged version of Waxahatchee.” “My life has changed a lot in the last two years, and it’s been hard for me to process my feelings other than by writing songs,” says Crutchfield in a press release. “I think a running theme (of Ivy Tripp) is steadying yourself on shaky ground and reminding yourself that you have control in situations that seem overwhelming, or just being cognizant in moments of deep confusion or sadness, and learning to really feel emotions and to grow from that.”

In support of the new album, Waxahatchee will embark on a US tour with The Goodbye Party and Girlpool. Looks like this spring will be a season filled with raw indie-rock feels.
