What were we just saying about January suddenly heating up, release-wise?
Now added to a constantly expanding schedule, on Jan. 17: “Voyager,” the latest from Canadian alt-country queen Kathleen Edwards, her first album since 2008’s “Asking For Flowers.”
The ten tracks — co-produced by Edwards and Justin Vernon, and recorded in Fall Creek, Wisconsin and Toronto — feature an addictive little ditty called “Change The Sheets,” recently available on her 7” single “Wapusk.”
Edwards is backed by her longtime touring band on “Voyager.” But she’s also enlisted a cavalcade of guest stars this time around, like Norah Jones, Stornoway, Francis & The Lights, John Roderick, Megafaun’s Phil Cook, Bon Iver’s Sean Carey and Peter Wolf Crier’s Brian Moen.
“I knew laying the foundation of this record would start with the songs,” Edwards explains. “For the first time, I was open to the idea of co-writing, and what had previously been an intensely private process became a challenge to see what would happen with an open mind to a different approach.”
