Larkin Poe, composed of the Georgia-bred, Nashville-based multi-instrumentalist sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell, are releasing their sixth studio album, Blood Harmony, due out on their own Tricki-Woo Records on Nov. 11.
The duo is offering fans a sample of the upcoming music with their new single, “Bad Spell,” available now at all DSPs and streaming services.
“Ever since I heard ‘I Put a Spell on You’ by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins for the first time I’ve wanted to write a female response to it,” says Rebecca. “I’d had the title ‘Bad Spell’ in my journal for years, and it was so fun to create a song where the riffs and guitar tones have that singular purpose of nastiness and swagger.”
Larkin Poe co-produced the new album alongside Tyler Bryant with Megan handling harmony vocals, lap steel, and resonator guitar and Rebecca on guitar and keys. Larkin Poe also enlisted members of their longtime live band, including drummer Kevin McGowan and bassist Tarka Layman for the project, which was recorded at Rebecca and Tyler’s home studio.
“When steering by your own stars, you never quite know where you’re going to wind up,” the duo offer. “Our true north is unique to us, and in following our true north without compromise, we have been out freewheeling this world on the ride of our lives. And it still feels like just the beginning. Blood Harmony is a creative step we are proud to have taken together as sisters. We grew these songs in a sweet part of our hearts and we hope they bring beauty.”
The duo will launch their world tour beginning May 20, which will run through the end of the year and include dates in Australia in April 2023.
