Jenny Lewis has confirmed her highly anticipated return with her fourth solo album, On the Line, out spring 2019 on Warner Bros. Records. Since releasing 2014's critically acclaimed The Voyager—which NPR likened to "California sunshine glinting off the Pacific Ocean, steeped in the West Coast pop sounds of the 1970s"—Jenny Lewis has been plotting her highly anticipated return. 

Between headlining dates around the globe and stealing the show at Newport Folk Festival 2018, not to mention captivating audiences as a special guest of Beck at Madison Square Garden, Jenny has been fastidious in recording brand new material. Featuring a who's who of supporting players including Beck, Benmont Tench, Don Was, Jim Keltner and Ringo Starr, among others, and recorded at the distinguished Capitol Studios, On the Line will no doubt be a triumphant and irresistible highlight of 2019.

"Heads Gonna Roll" features a poignant vocal performance and soulful piano accompaniment by Jenny, interwoven with sweeping string arrangements that swell with a crescendoing chorus. "Heads Gonna Roll" follows the "smoldering" (Rolling Stone) first single "Red Bull & Hennessy," which had critics instantly raving:

"the latest, essential chapter in Lewis' long career of navigating bruised emotional complexities." —Rolling Stone (Song You Need To Know)

"a drama worthy of Steve Nicks' Bella Donna. And it sounds incredible" —AV Club

Sequestered away in rural bliss, 90 minutes north of Seattle on the Washington state coast, Karl Blau has been making records for 20 years, but never with European distribution. So, when Bella Union released Introducing Karl Blau in 2016, it shone a belated and deserved light on "one of the great hidden treasures of music," claimed album producer Tucker Martine. But given Introducing's specific agenda—a set of gorgeous, lush cover versions drawing mostly on vintage Nashville country-soul with Blau concentrating on his rich, reverberating voice—his latest album Out Her Space is so different that it could be titled Reintroducing Karl Blau.

Out Her Space features all Blau's own material, production and multi-instrumental skills, and forges a gorgeous, languid and hook-infested gumbo of soul, funk, some jazzy blowing and Afro-pop, to arrive somewhere else entirely.
