To reserve a copy of the album and download the opening track, "Ladybird," now, visit iTunes or the Nonesuch Store, where orders include a download of the complete album available starting Tuesday.

Also on both sites, and posted below, is a video of an in-depth conversation with Merchant, in which she discusses the new album and the "intimate portraits" she creates in its songs.

    "I remember reading that Virginia Woolf thought that Mrs. Dalloway was the first novel that she ever wrote after she had found her voice," Merchant says in the interview. "And she was 43. You can't find your voice until you've lived for a long time."
