    Lake Street Dive Releases "Being a Woman" from Upcoming Album, 'Obviously'

    In anticipation of International Women’s Day, Lake Street Dive has released "Being a Woman," the latest track from their new album, Obviously, out next week on Nonesuch Records. You can hear the song here. Written by the band’s bassist Bridget Kearney, the track speaks to gender inequality and the societal discrimination women face on a daily basis. On Obviously, Lake Street Dive has crafted songs that reflect this particularly turbulent chapter in our shared history.

    “Happy Women’s History Month! This one goes out to all of the hard-working women of the world,” says Kearney. “We are thankful to the many voices that came before us shouting for gender equality, without whom we may never have had this microphone in which to say, ‘It's not fixed yet!’ With this song, we humbly add our voices to that chorus.”

    The band will celebrate the release of Obviously with performances on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on March 11 and CBS This Morning: Saturday Sessions on March 13.

    Obviously is produced by Grammy Award-winning producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Mike Elizondo, best known as a songwriting collaborator with Dr. Dre, Eminem and 50 Cent; he has also produced records for Fiona Apple, Mary J. Blige, Carrie Underwood and 21 Pilots, among many others. Utilizing Elizondo’s hip-hop record-making expertise, Lake Street Dive’s wide-ranging taste in pop, rock, R&B and jazz have blended together to make an impressively cohesive sound, combining retro influences with a contemporary attitude.

    The four original members of Lake Street Dive founded the group in 2004 while attending the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. The band features Kearney, Rachael Price (lead vocals), Mike “McDuck” Olson (trumpet, guitar) and Mike Calabrese (drums) as well as their newest member Akie Bermiss (keyboards), who began touring with the group in 2017.
