Sixpence None The Richer Return With New Album 'Lost In Transition'

Aug 07 2012

Sixpence None The Richer release their first new studio album 'Lost In Transition' this week since 2002's 'Divine Discontent'. With the exception of a Christmas album in 2008 the group, best known for their 1998 single 'Kiss Me', have remained quiet since their 2004 split and subsequent reform in 2007.

Produced by Jim Scott (Wilco, Tom Petty, Dixie Chicks) the album is mostly recorded live in the studio, with few overdubs, and is described as an emotional return for the reunited band, featuring songs like 'Sooner Than Later' which lead singer Leigh Nash wrote with her husband about the death of her father.

"That's a relationship and something I don't mind at all baring for the world to see", singer Leigh Nash told Billboard about the song. "The pain of losing a parent, a lot of people can connect with that."

"When I get to sing that live on stage with the band, it really helps me," Nash said. "I'm able to keep working on those emotions and that grief through that song." Other tracks on the album include 'Failure', which deals with anxiety, and 'Radio'.

"'Radio' is such a fun song to sing live," Nash tells American Songwriter. "One of my all time favorites. The spirit of the song is very moving, as well as the melody itself." Guitarist Matt Slocum sets the scene: "While driving and listening to the radio, an old favorite song inspires a man to reminisce about an old relationship born from a road trip. Not quite the cinematic lyrical brilliance of Richard Thompson's '1952 Vincent Black Lightning', but nonetheless an attempt at that type of imagery in a pop song lyric."
