Grace Potter Releases New Album, Mother Road
3X GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter and “one of the greatest living voices in rock today” (SPIN), Grace Potter releases Mother Road via Fantasy Records.
Across 10 dynamic tracks, Potter deconstructs her deepest fears and darkest regrets, charting the fallout with brutal honesty and emotional daring. Stream Mother Road HERE.
“While writing Mother Road, I spent two years driving back and forth across America, exploring the backroads & byways of Route 66, favoring alternate routes whenever possible. I spent the time reflecting on my roles as a woman, a mother, and a dreamer,” Potter shares. “As Mother Road unfolds, my central narrative begins to fragment into multiple paths. Each path becomes a character, and each character weaves in and out of my present-day consciousness at important milestones along the way. The album is my take on what it means to be alive and how to live life to the fullest.”
Produced by Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age, Nickel Creek) and recorded at RCA’s famed Studio A in Nashville and Topangadise in Topanga, CA, Mother Road – the “dynamite” (Guitar Player) follow up to Potter’s 2019 acclaimed, 2X GRAMMY-nominated album, Daylight – commands an expansive soundscape of soulful rock, roots, funk, country, and R&B.
Potter is set to appear on CBS Saturday Morning next Saturday, August 26. The appearance will include three electric performances of tracks off the new album. Earlier this week, she was featured on Billboard’s Behind the Setlist Podcast as well as on The Bob Lefsetz Podcast and, today, she can be heard on SiriusXM’s Howard 101 for a ‘Songs I Want to Hear’ segment.
