Waxahatchee, the indie brainchild of Kansas-based singer-songwriter Katie Crutchfield, just announced her upcoming new album "Tigers Blood". The album follows her 2020 release "Saint Cloud" which gained much acclaim for Waxahatchee's signature endearing musical styles. Highly anticipated, the singer gave fans a taste of her new sonic masterpieces through its lead single "Right Back to It". The track is a duet with Wednesday's MJ Lenderman, a track that speaks volumes of emotion about a longtime love. Kicking off a new era, Crutchfield just announced a headlining tour kicking off this Spring.
"Tigers Blood" is scheduled for release on March 22nd. Talking about her new single, "I’m really interested in writing love songs that are gritty and unromantic," she shared in an official statement. Written in June 2022, she was backstage at Virginia’s Wolf Trap as an opening act for Sheryl Crow and Jason Isbell. "I wanted to make a song about the ebb and flow of a longtime love story. I thought it might feel untraditional but a little more in alignment with my experience to write about feeling insecure or foiled in some way internally, but always finding your way back to a newness or an intimacy with the same person."
Indeed, we're finding our way back to intimacy with the one and only love of our lives. She's always been a master of storytelling and imparting emotions that hit deep right into your hearts. The song's video perfectly depicts the mood, featuring Crutchfield and Lenderman in Caddo Lake, on a low boat. Like gentle waters, it's a tender melody that gets you hypnotized into her own world.
Back in 2020, Waxahatchee released her fifth studio album "Saint Cloud" with its lead single "Fire". Recorded in 2019 at Sonic Ranch and Long Pond in Texas and New York respectively, it was a critically acclaimed album highlighting her musical growth and influences. The album got her the 7th spot on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart of April 2020 while the album hit #1 on the Heatseekers chart.
"I knew that I wanted my next record to be completely different than Out In The Storm," she said in an interview with Rolling Stone. "I love all of it, but I knew [that sound] wasn’t going to be super-sustainable for me because it’s so loud and abrasive. I needed to have that experience, but I also knew that I was going to need to take a sharp turn on the next one."
Taking a sharp turn, her music definitely spoke volumes of life experiences, discoveries, and lessons. It was a relatable masterpiece. "It’s a really personal thing, sobriety. I feel like myself again." she shared.
As "Tigers Blood" starts to roar and serve Waxahatchee's newest heartfelt anthems, it sure is a one-of-a-kind experience to witness Crutchfield perform it all live on stage. Save your spots at her Hollywood Palladium on May 16th by booking your tickets now!
