Jana Horn has released a new single called ‘Time Machine’. It’s taken from the Austin singer-songwriter’s debut album Optimism, which was self-released in 2020 in a small run of vinyl and is getting a re-release on January 21 via No Quarter Records. ‘Time Machine’ follows the previously shared singles ‘Jordan’ and ‘Optimism’. You can check out all three advance tracks below.
“Optimism seemed to come about indirectly, almost in passing, a feeling of being in-between things…” Horn said in a statement (via Stereogum). “I had just discovered, late, Raymond Carver, Broadcast, Sybil Baier (which ‘Tonight’ is more or less dedicated to), Annette Peacock, Richard & Linda Thompson, a short story called ‘Car Crash While Hitchhiking’ by Denis Johnson. I had ‘Heart Needs A Home’ in mind, ‘The Great Valerio’; I was just really moving through the world, hanging in the shadows of the people I wanted to be. Hoping, looking out, this is Optimism. I was looking for anything.”
