Waxahatchee announces new album ‘Tigers Blood’ and shares single ‘Right Back To It’

Waxahatchee has announced her latest LP ‘Tigers Blood’ and has shared the lead single ‘Right Back To It’.

‘Tigers Blood’ will mark the sixth album released by the singer – real name Katie Crutchfield – and follows her 2020 LP ‘St. Cloud’. It also marks her first release under her new label home, ANTI-.

A press release said that in this LP Crutchfield “emerges as a powerhouse – an ethnologist of the self – forever dedicated to revisiting her wins and losses” and sees her “arriving at revelations” and not holding them back.

The majority of the songs were written during what the singer called a “hot hand spell,” while on tour near the end of 2022. She reunited with her ‘St. Cloud’ producer, Brad Cook and collaborated with new colleagues such as MJ Lenderman and Spencer Tweedy.

‘Tigers Blood’ is set for release on March 22. Fans can pre-order the album here.

‘Right Back To It’ was released as the album’s first single. Directed by Corbett Jones and Nick Simonite, the accompanying video sees the singer singing on a boat while MJ Lenderman steers it providing backing vocals and playing guitar.

Speaking about the track, Crutchfield said (per Pitchfork): “I’m really interested in writing love songs that are gritty and unromantic. I wanted to make a song about the ebb and flow of a longtime love story.”

She continued: “I thought it might feel untraditional but a little more in alignment with my experience to write about feeling insecure or foiled in some way internally, but always finding your way back to a newness or an intimacy with the same person.”

In a four-star review of her 2020 LP, NME said: ” Across the duration of ‘Saint Cloud’, a number of returns are made. ‘Ruby Falls’ namechecks Waxahatchee Creek, calling back to the physical roots of the project, while the album’s titular closing track – an elegiac voice and piano affair, “burning slow” as its late refrain suggests – is named in honour of her father’s home town in Florida.”

They continued: “Crutchfield is 30 now, and recently described sobriety as another return: to the person she used to be before she started drinking. And though that sea change may have resembled a swirling tempest, it’s a pleasure to hear one of America’s finest modern songwriters working in her brand new element.”
