Lake Street Dive released Free Yourself Up, its 2nd album with Nonesuch Records on May 4. The band - drummer Michael Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, singer Rachael Price, & guitarist/trumpeter Michael "McDuck" Olson - self-produced the album at Goosehead Palace Studios in Nashville with engineer Dan Knobler. For this album, the quartet drafted touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio. Adding another player to the process freed up the band members to explore a wider range of instrumental textures, construct more full-bodied arrangements, & build on their well-known background harmonies. "This album is based in the realities in our time" Kearney reflects "which have inevitably become part of everyone's daily life. It's something you think about and obsess over - and write songs about. Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself, no matter what's going wrong."
