Jenny Lewis Completes Solo Album, Hopes for Spring Release

Jenny Lewis hasn’t been sleeping much lately: she’s been collaborating with folks like Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij for the Girls soundtrack, and Johnathan Rice for their score in Anne Hathaway’s movie One Song.

But that’s not all we’ll be hearing from her. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Lewis hinted at the release of her freshly recorded solo album, with high hopes to have it ready this spring.

“I’m mixing next week and this is all I’ll say,” she said. “Until it’s mixed I don’t really want to talk about it, but it took a village.”

Lewis said the album, which will be her second solo work since the release of Acid Tongue in 2008, was inspired by insomnia, and that she writes when she can’t sleep.

“I was awake for a while,” Lewis said.

Even though she isn’t saying much, the news speaks enough hype for one of the longest anticipated solo albums of the year.

“I’m superstitious, until I start mixing, I feel like when I start it then I will be able to actually speak of it. Lewis said. “But I’m done recording, and I’m just mixing in LA.”

Check her out live this summer at the Shaky Knees Festival in May and the Governor’s Ball Festival in June.
