The Secret Sisters are releasing a new album, Saturn Return, on Feb. 28. The New West Records project, produced by Brandi Carlile, Tim Hanseroth and Phil Hanseroth, is available now for pre-order and includes an immediate download of the first single, “Cabin.”
Recorded at Carlile’s home studio in Washington state, the album includes 10 songs written by Laura and Lydia Rogers and features the real-life sisters singing individually for the first time instead of relying solely on their trademark harmonies—something Carlile challenged them to do.
“As we age, we face obstacles that are beyond our control,” explain the sisters about the impetus for the new album. “Some forces are internal: insecurity, anxiety, fear. Some are external: the loss of loved ones, an unjust system and the fragility of time. Yet the mark of maturity is how you respond when you realize you’re not in control. Where do you find your resilience? This album is a reflection of us coming to terms with how to find our power in the face of an unfair world. These songs lead listeners past ‘where happy man searches, to a place only mad women know.’ We question our purpose, our relationships, our faith. Trading the fears of our youth for the dread that rages within us as mature women. With Saturn Return, our hope is that women can feel less alone in their journey through the modern world. We need each other more than we ever have; the less competition and the more inclusiveness and understanding, the better. We are southern women in the 21st century, convicted by our beliefs.”
In celebration of the new album, The Secret Sisters will embark on a tour in 2020, including shows at Brooklyn’s Murmrr Theatre on March 25, Philadelphia’s City Winery on March 28, Los Angeles’ Lodge Room on April 28 and Seattle’s Neptune Theatre on May 2, as well as dates across Europe.
