The Weather Station, the project of Toronto based singer/songwriter, lyricist and multi-instrumentalist Tamara Lindeman, has confirmed the release of her third album, Loyalty. Slated for a May 12th release via Paradise of Bachelors in the US and Europe and via Outside Music in Canada, the album was recorded at La Frette Studios near Paris, with Afie Jurvanen aka Bahamas and Robbie Lackritz (Feist).
On Loyalty, Lindeman played guitar, banjo, keys, and vibes, and as the press release reminds us, she “has always been a songwriter’s songwriter, recognized for her intricate, carefully worded verse, filled with double meanings, ambiguities, and complex metaphors”. It adds that “lyrically, Loyalty inverts and involutes the language of confession, of regret, of our most private and muddled mental feelings, by externalizing those anxieties through exquisite observation of the things and people we accumulate, the modest meanings accreted during even our most ostensibly mundane domestic moments.”
The delicate and intricate ‘Way It Is, Way It Could Be’ is the first single to be lifted from Loyalty and it serves as a magnificent taste.
