LISTEN: Waxahatchee Releases First Single “Air,” Announces New Album Details

The singer's third LP, Ivy Tripp, is slated to be released this April.

Katie Crutchfield, better known as Waxahatchee, has announced the details of her upcoming album and shared a brand-new track as a first glimpse into her third record. Ivy Tripp is set to be released April 7, 2015, and will be her first record since being signed to Merge Records.

“Air” shows that Crutchfield has fleshed out her sound with this new album, and is going after the same raw emotional power she displayed on 2013’s Cerulean Salt, with added fervor. In her own words, a running theme throughout 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.”

The Alabama native will be heading out on tour this spring in support of the new album, supported by a full band that includes her sister Allison, with stops across the  US. See the full list of tour dates below.
