Barrie has unveiled a new song, ‘Jenny’, the latest single from her forthcoming second album Barbara. Give it a listen below.
“I was looking to James Taylor for the guitar and The Band for the organ to try to capture an Americana feel for Jenny,” Barrie Lindsay explained in a press release. These artists are able to simultaneously encapsulate a swagger and an earnestness that gives their music a grown-up, classic feel. I wanted Jenny to be like an American Songbook song; any level of musician could play it and it would feel good to play either alone with one’s guitar, around a campfire with some friends, or at a big concert with everyone singing along.”
“I wrote it while reflecting on a memory from tour, when I met my wife,” Lindsay added. “We had a day off in Austin, and a group of us went swimming in a creek. I was picturing that day, before I was aware of any connection between us, and imagining how it would have played out if I had been. I wasn’t devoted right away, I wasn’t sure.”
Barbara is due out March 25 via Winspear. It includes the previously shared singles ‘Dig’, ‘Frankie’, and ‘Quarry’.
