– Brandy Clark said today she would release her new album, "Your Life is a Record," on Warner on March 6.
"To me, this album is about endings and beginnings. You know, sometimes you have to have endings to have those beautiful beginnings. I hope you find yourselves in me finding myself," said Clark in a Twitter post.
Clark released the leading single, "Who You Thought I Was," today.
="The seed of the song came from something that John Prine said a couple of years ago at the Americana Awards. He walked out onstage at the Ryman, and everyone stood up and clapped for what felt like five minutes. When everyone sat down, he said with a little laugh, 'Well, I'm John Prine, but I'd like to go back to being who you thought I was.' Man...that hit me. The songwriter in me instantly knew it was a song, and the heart in me knew it was how I had felt in my own life many times. I mean who of us hasn't let somebody down or wanted to be the version of ourselves that someone who loved us thought we were?" Clark said.
Jay Joyce produced the set, mainly recorded with an acoustic quartet.
The track list is:
1. I'll Be the Sad Song
2. Long Walk
3. Love is a Fire
4. Pawn Shop
5. Who You Thought I Was
7. Bigger Boat (feat. Randy Newman)
8. Bad Car
9. Who Broke Whose Heart
10. Can We Be Strangers
11. The Past is the Past
The Washington native has enjoyed success as a songwriter.
