Three years after Out In the Storm, American singer-songwriter Katie Crutchfiel aka Waxahatchee announced the release of a new album. Saint Cloud is out on March 27th via Merge Records and it is available to pre-order here. We already shared “Lilacs”; “Can’t Do Much” is a new excerpt and comes with the official video directed by Anna Powell Teeter & the Saint Cloud Band.
According to the press release, While her last two records (Out in the Storm and Ivy Tripp) featured the kind of big guitars, well-honed noise, and battering sounds that characterized her Philadelphia scene and strongly influenced a burgeoning new class of singer-songwriters, Saint Cloud strips back those layers to create space for Katie Crutchfield’s voice and lyrics. The result is a classic Americana sound with modern touches befitting an artist who has emerged as one of the signature storytellers of her time.
