Singer/songwriter Lori McKenna will follow up her 2016 Grammy-nominated album, The Bird & the Rifle, with the July 20 release of her 11th studio album, The Tree.
Produced by Dave Cobb, The Tree features 11 songs that Lori wrote or co-wrote, including lead single, “People Get Old,” which you can listen to below.
“I love people’s stories about their families—the way they tic and the ways we’re all crazy and love each other,” says Lori. “I hope my songs shine a little light on that for a second. Maybe our stories remind us of our families and what they give us. It’s beautiful, and sometimes we take it for granted.”
Lori, the songwriter behind Grammy-winning tunes “Girl Crush” and “Humble & Kind,” will embark on her The Way Back Home Tour this summer.
