Lydia Loveless – new album Somewhere Else

on Bloodshot Records

out now

The new release is her fourth overall and follows the limited-release EP Boy Crazy (2013) and 2011’s breakout Indestructible Machine.

From all reports, Loveless emerges with the gloves off and brimming with confidence on Somewhere Else.  Writing from this new-found place of conviction, Lydia crafted ten songs that are stark in their honesty, self-examination, and openness.  Loveless and Co. (Ben Lamb on bass, Todd May on guitar and vocals, and new drummer Nick German) have coalesced into a band with a broad rock ‘n’ roll range, after a couple of years spent performing everywhere from rowdy festivals to pin-drop quiet dinner sets.

On Somewhere Else Loveless is less concerned with chasing approval – she scrapped an entire album’s worth of material before writing this set – and more focused on fighting personal battles of longing and heartbreak, and the aesthetic that comes along with them.  Somewhere Else was recorded and mixed at Sonic Lounge, just outside Loveless’ hometown of Columbus, OH.
