Two-time Grammy winner Sonya Kitchell just announced her first LP in seven years, We Come Apart, due for release on January 22nd via Rockwood Music Hall Recordings/Thirty Tigers.
Kitchell has collaborated with everyone from Herbie Hancock to Joni Mitchell. We Come Apart sees Sonya stepping into the role of producer for the first time for a record of powerful piano-infused folk fleshed out with percussion, horns, & strings. The record features a host of incredible collaborators including members of The Dap-Kings, Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes), Gyda Valtysdottir (MUM) Neal Evans (Soulive), Findlay Brown, Shahzad Ismaily, and more.
The album’s stunning first single, “Mexico”, features MUM Cellist Lyda Valtysdottir; the tune showcases Kitchell’s effortlessly dreamy, come-hither vocal stylings, delicately intertwined with a mod-tastic percussive groove reinforced by an underlying layer of driving cello.
