California singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis has debuted her new single, "Just One Of The Guys," on NPR's "All Songs Considered" today. The track is taken from her forthcoming album The Voyager, which will be released by Warner Bros. Records on July 29th.
The album is now available for pre-order today from all participating digital retailers. Those who pre-order will receive an instant download of "Just One Of The Guys."
"Just One Of The Guys" was produced by Beck, who also contributes backing vocals. "It was one of the tunes I'd tried a few different ways before I finally recorded it with Beck at his home studio in Malibu," Lewis says. "The whole experience was super laid-back - walking on the beach, talking about movies, the Rolling Stones, and French pop music. It was just very mellow and lovely."
Beck is one of several artists Lewis chose to produce tracks on The Voyager, which also features production from Ryan Adams, alongside Mike Viola, as well as her longtime collaborator, Johnathan Rice. The Voyager is the former Rilo Kiley frontwoman's third solo album and first in six years, following 2006's Rabbit Fur Coat (with The Watson Twins) and 2008's Acid Tongue. It finds the always relatable songwriter at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent experiences with honesty and incisiveness.
