Jenny Lewis has debuted a song she penned with Johnathan Rice for Song One, a film that will be released January 23rd starring Anne Hathaway, Johnny Flynn and Mary Steenburgen, and directed by Kate Barker-Froyland. Listen to ‘In April’ at the Rolling Stone premiere. Rolling Stone also deemed Lewis’ single ‘Just One of the Guys’ as one of their ’50 Best Songs of 2014′ and her album, The Voyager, as one of their ‘Best Albums of 2014.’ The Voyager has also earned ‘Best of 2014′ accolades from The Guardian, American Songwriter, Stereogum, Paste, and more.
Lewis will also be performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on December 18th, and will make an appearance on Austin City Limits TV with Ryan Adams on January 24th. The Voyager, the new solo album from Jenny Lewis, is Lewis’ first Top 10 album and highest chart debut ever, including the albums she released with her former band Rilo Kiley and with her side project Jenny and Johnny with Johnathan Rice. In addition, The Voyager debuted at No. 1 on the Vinyl Albums chart and No. 2 on the Alternative Albums chart.
The Voyager is Lewis’s most deeply personal album to date, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of Rilo Kiley. The Voyager’s rootsy, golden glow comes courtesy of Lewis and the artists she chose to produce various tracks, including Ryan Adams (who, alongside Mike Viola, produced all but three of the tracks), Beck, and Lewis’ longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice. The Voyager finds the always relatable songwriter at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent experiences with honesty and incisiveness.
