Nashville-based, Memphis-native Julien Baker has blessed fans with the release of her highly-anticipated third studio album, Little Oblivions. Featuring the singles Hardline, Faith Healer and Favour, the record follows the singers 2017 sophomore album Turn Out The Lights.
Recorded in Baker’s hometown of Memphis, Tennessee between December 2019 and January 2020, the musician brings tactile guitar and piano to the collection of songs, weaving in new textures encompassing bass, drums, synthesizers, banjo and mandolin. Having performed the majority of the instruments herself, the album takes on an autobiographical nature, with the musician documenting experiences and observations from the past few years. The record serves as another triumph of musicianship and lyrical mastery from Baker.
Baker has also announced a live-streamed concert in support of the release, taking place on March 25 at 8PM AEDT. The fully-produced streaming concert will be broadcast from Nashville’s Analog (at Hutton Hotel) via STAGED, Audiotree’s acclaimed virtual concert series. Tickets start at $15 and are available exclusively here.
In 2018, Baker formed boygenius with Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus. The resulting eponymous EP and joint North American tour made for one of the most celebrated and talked about musical communions of that year, highlighting Baker at the forefront of a burgeoning generation of era-defining artists.
