Waxahatchee Drops Damn Good Duet With MJ Lenderman, Finally Announces New Album

It’s been three years since we’ve had a new Waxahatchee album, but the wait is over: Katie Crutchfield will release Tigers Blood on March 22 via Anti-.

Crutchfield previewed the long-awaited album with the lead single “Right Back to It,” a duet with Wednesday’s MJ Lenderman. It’s an Americana burner full of tender twang, with lines chronicling a longtime love. The video, which you can watch below, features Crutchfield and Lenderman in Caddo Lake, Texas, serenely riding in a low boat.

According to Crutchfield, “Right Back to It” was written in June 2022, when she was backstage at Virginia’s Wolf Trap opening for Sheryl Crow and Jason Isbell. “I’m really interested in writing love songs that are gritty and unromantic,” she said. “I wanted to make a song about the ebb and flow of a longtime love story. 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.”

Tigers Blood follows the excellent Saint Cloud — which Crutchfield released in the pandemic — and I Walked With You a Ways, a record with Jess Williamson as the duo Plains. Crutchfield will tour in support of Tigers Blood, kicking off in her home of Kansas City on April 18. The trek will hit major cities through late May, pausing in the summer and resuming in Boise, Idaho, on Aug. 19.
