Nashville-based singer-songwriter Jessie Baylin will release her latest full-length, Dark Place, in April. The 11-song album was recorded with producer Richard Swift (Tennis, Foxygen) in his Oregon studio over the course of nine days, continuing the fruitful musical partnership that began when the two met over the recording of Baylin’s last full-length, 2012’s Little Spark.
“With him there was instant trust and chemistry,” Baylin said in a recent press statement of her first meeting with Swift. “He was the first person who I felt saw me as an artist and he wasn’t expecting anything except for me to be myself.”
In anticipation of the release of Dark Place, Baylin has shared album track “To Hell and Back,” a song that she says “explores the depths of forgiveness within yourself and with the one you love.” Listen to “To Hell and Back” in the player above. Dark Place is set for release on April 7 on Blonde Rat, her own indie label via Thirty Tigers.
