    Lake Street Dive's New Album, "Free Yourself Up," Due May 4 on Nonesuch Records; Tour to Follow

    Lake Street Dive will release Free Yourself Up, its second album with Nonesuch Records, on May 4. The four-member band—drummer Michael Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, singer Rachael Price, and guitarist/trumpeter Michael "McDuck" Olson—self-produced the album at Goosehead Palace Studios in Nashville, TN, with engineer Dan Knobler. Tour dates to support Free Yourself Up begin with an intimate show at The Sinclair in the band's original home of Boston on release day. During this release tour, every ticket purchased online for the band's headline shows includes a CD of the new album. Full details are below.

    Free Yourself Up is available to preorder now at iTunes, Lake Street Dive's shop, and the Nonesuch Store, where the album track "Good Kisser" is available for instant download; Nonesuch Store pre-orders also include an exclusive print autographed by the band. "Good Kisser" is also streaming at Spotify and Apple Music.

    The band also shares a performance video of "Good Kisser," recorded at Goosehead Palace Studios, which can be seen here:

    To Lake Street Dive, the title, Free Yourself Up, is both an exhortation to listeners and a statement of purpose for the band. In many ways, this is the band's most intimate and collaborative record, with the band working as a tightly knit unit to craft its ten songs. For this album, the quartet drafted touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio as well as on stage. Adding another player to the process freed up the the band members to explore a wider range of instrumental textures, construct more full-bodied arrangements, and build on their well-known background harmonies.

    Free Yourself Up is the follow up to the band's Nonesuch Records debut Side Pony. The band toured eighteen months for that album, including a sold-out headlining show at Radio City Music Hall. Side Pony album was lauded in the press, with Rolling Stone calling it "irresistible,"rand the Boston Globe saying, "Side Pony is a confident, expertly played statement from a band that's been honing its approach for more than a decade, and it clearly shows that Lake Street Dive is ready to make itself known to whatever audiences have yet to succumb to its many charms."

    "This album is based in the realities in our time,' Kearney reflects," which have inevitably become part of everyone's daily life. It's something you think about and obsess over—and write songs about. Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself, no matter what's going wrong."
