Listen to the New Jenny O. Song “People” + 2017 Tour Dates
“People”, a new song from singer-songwriter Jenny O., can be streamed below. The track is taken from her sophomore album, Peace & Information, which will be released on August 4, 2017 via Holy Trinity Records. The album was produced by Jonathan Wilson (Father John Misty, Roy Harper, Dawes), who also produced Jenny’s 2013 debut, Automechanic.
“These aren’t necessarily the songs I wanted to write, but they were the ones I had to write,” Jenny O. says of the material on Peace & Information. “I had a difficult year or two, so I wrote my way out of it.”
This difficult chapter included challenging romantic relationships, a move from L.A. to Nashville, depression, trauma, a resulting case of PTSD, and a lot of inward work, not necessarily in that order. These experiences resulted in a group of songs that take the listener on a journey that culminates in insights about increased intuition, the pursuit of self-actualization, and taking back one’s personal power. Eventually, Jenny moved into an 18th-century log cabin that had belonged to Jimmy Buffet in the 70s. She spent her time there reading, writing and sleeping in her bedroom, trying to heal while battling depression.
“It was the most beautiful, the cheapest, and the most necessary place I’ve ever lived,” she says. It was here that she wrote the songs that became Peace & Information. After spending eight months there, the cabin was bulldozed to make way for condominiums. She returned to Los Angeles to record the album with Wilson.
“We recorded to tape, like last time. The whole record was tracked and mixed in 17 days,” Jenny says. “We both draw from all kinds of music so the album is pretty varied. I declare it rock & roll, but this time we used more synthesizers and grunge guitar, and there’s a depression bossa nova on there too.”
Beginning in September, Jenny O. will embark on a North American tour; a list of those dates can also be found below.
