“Over the past four years, Juliana Hatfield has kept fans engaged and intrigued as she oscillates between impassioned original releases (Pussycat, Weird) and inspired covers collections (Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John, and Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police). This year she returns with her latest album of originals, “Blood”.

Her 19th solo studio album takes a deep dive into the dark side with a lens on modern human psychology and behaviour. “I think these songs are a reaction to how seriously and negatively a lot of people have been affected by the past four years,” says Juliana. “But it’s fun, musically. There’s a lot of playing around. I didn’t really have a plan when I started this project.” With the pandemic limiting studio safety and availability, Juliana took the opportunity to learn to record her songs at her Massachusetts home with recent collaborator Jed Davis assisting from Connecticut.

“Usually I work in a studio,” explains Juliana. “I did more than half the work in my room — with Jed helping me to troubleshoot the technology, and helping with building and arranging some of the songs — and then I finished up with additional overdubs and mixing with engineer James Bridges at Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA.”

Hello, music friends! On May 8th at 4pm Eastern Daylight Time I will be doing a pre-release party livestream to celebrate the official release (on May 14th) of my new album, “Blood.” As always, the show is free and unticketed and open to all, but donations are welcome and *very much* appreciated (thank you). This show will be a bit different than the previous ones in that I will not be performing a whole album start to finish. I will play a handful of songs from the “Blood” album, but I will also pick a selection of songs from my vast decades-spanning repertoire that all somehow touch on the idea of blood. (“Anemia” will be one of them.) Cheers!
