Michelle Branch's fourth solo album, The Trouble With Fever, is out now. Also out today is the video for the album's second single, "Not My Lover," directed by Alexa Stone and Stephen Kinigopoulos at a local karaoke bar in Nashville. You can watch it here. "This song is about the mistakes we make and trying to learn from them instead of letting them burn you down,” Branch says. "You have the power to change your own narrative." Branch's tour began in Boston last night and continues in Philadelphia, NYC, DC, Chicago, San Francisco, and LA. Her sold-out show at the Troubadour in LA September 27 will stream live.

Grammy Award-winning and multi-Platinum selling singer-songwriter Michelle Branch's fourth solo album, The Trouble With Fever, is out now on Audio Eagle / Nonesuch Records / Warner Records. The passion project, born out of the pandemic lockdown, is a collection of material that shows the evolution of Branch’s sound and a lyrical perspective of an artist whose grounded and relatable sensibilities kept her connected to her fans for over 20 years.

Also released today is the video for the album's second single, "Not My Lover." Shot at a local karaoke bar in Nashville and directed by Alexa Stone and Stephen Kinigopoulos (Running Bear Films), the video shows Branch and friends taking to the microphone for a girls night out as they sing about the cathartic emotions of learning to let go. You can watch it here:

“This song is about the mistakes we make and trying to learn from them instead of letting them burn you down,” Branch says. “You have the power to change your own narrative. I really wanted it to be reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac sonically.”

The Trouble with Fever, co-produced with Patrick Carney (The Black Keys), follows Branch’s critically acclaimed 2017 album, Hopeless Romantic. The time at home in isolation gave her the opportunity to stretch herself creatively—not only in writing every track on the record but also by pushing herself to learn instruments she had little to no experience with.

"I didn’t realize I was making a record at first—it was more just for our own sanity, living in a house with a toddler, getting time together to play music and screw around in the studio,” she says. “It felt like new territory. It really was just Patrick and me together, in a very weird time. And it was surprising to make a record that way, without being told to go to work. It was cool that there were no expectations for it at all. We were in such a safe little creative bubble.”

Branch kicked off her The Trouble With Fever Tour in Boston last night and is at Rough Trade in New York City this evening, followed by shows in Philadelphia, New York, DC, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Her sold-out show at the Troubadour in LA on Tuesday, September 27, will stream live via flymachine.

    Makaya McCraven's new album, In These Times, is out now on International Anthem / Nonesuch / XL. It is the album McCraven’s been trying to make since he started making records, an appropriately career-defining body of work. The eleven-song suite was created over seven-plus years, as McCraven strived to fuse odd-meter compositions from his working songbook with orchestral, large-ensemble arrangements and the edit-heavy “organic beat music” he’s honed over the years. With contributions from over a dozen musicians and creative partners from his tight-knit circle of collaborators—including Jeff Parker, Junius Paul, Brandee Younger, Joel Ross, and Marquis Hill—In These Times highlights McCraven’s gift for collapsing space, destroying borders, and blending past, present, and future into poly-textural arrangements of post-genre, jazz-rooted 21st-century folk music.
