Nashville-based indie folk artist Becca Mancari has announced a new EP called Juniata. The four-track effort features acoustic reworkings of songs from her 2020 sophomore album, The Greatest Part, as well as a new track titled ‘Annie’, which you can check out below.
“I grew up watching 1950’s and 60’s movies that my grandma would record for us because we didn’t have TV growing up,” Mancari said in a statement about the track. “The thing that I loved the most about these old films was the music… it was a time period where it felt almost appropriate to be a little dramatic in this lush orchestral fashion. So when I wrote “Annie” I wanted to harken back to that time of feeling like you were swept up into a dance.”
She added: “Also, I wrote this song on the front porch where I started my other band Bermuda Triangle. We used to play it during our live set, where Brittany would rip this incredible solo on classical guitar. “Annie” has definitely lived a few lives already, but it feels right that it would now be on this EP. It’s a little piece of coming back home.”
