Sarah Buxton will release her first new project in nearly 10 years, with her EP Signs of Life releasing Nov. 20. The first single, “Some Things Don’t Change,” releases today (Oct. 30).
“I always wanted to make a record that would live in somebody else’s world the way a Joni Mitchell record does in mine,” Buxton says. “I always felt like Joni Mitchell and Stevie Nicks were my older sisters, walking with me, lifting my chin up and saying, ‘You got this.’”
Buxton recorded the project at Daniel Tashian‘s studio, with collaborators including Tashian, Ian Fitchuk, and Buxton’s husband guitarist Tom Bukovac Tashian, who is also Buxton’s bandmate in the group Skyline Motel, alongside Kate York and Fitchuk.
“I feel like a huge theme in my life is learning how to love myself, listen to myself, observe myself, and accept myself,” says Buxton. “I used to have people I would go to for answers, but now, I’m trying to lean a little bit more on my own intuition. It takes courage to grow younger in your heart as you’re getting older, and to not just close off. It takes a lot of shedding, too. There is a lot of grief in these songs. It’s been a time of growing up for me—but it’s also a return to who I was.”
