Maria Taylor to release LadyLuck on April 7

This past year has been a little rough for the folks at Nebraska-based Saddle Creek.

The record label has experienced a bit of an exodus of its big-name artists over the past 12 months. First there was The Faint, who released 2008's Fasciination on its own upstart Blank.Wav. Then there was Conor Oberst who teamed up with Merge for his solo debut with the Mystic Valley Band.

Now you can add Maria Taylor to that list. Taylor, who released her last two albums (11:11 and Lynn Teeter Flower) on Saddle Creek, will release her upcoming solo effort on Nettwerk, her longtime management agency. LadyLuck, her third solo album, will be out on April 7. Two songs from LadyLuck, "Time Lapse Lifeline" and "Orchids," are available now.

On the album Taylor worked with producers Andy LeMaster, Mike Mogis and Lukas Burton and collaborated with Michael Stipe (R.E.M), Nate Walcott (Bright Eyes) and Mckenzie Smith (Midlake).
