Grace Potter Reveals New Album Details

Grace Potter & The Nocturnals have revealed the details of their four studio album, The Lion The Beast The Beat, which is due out this summer. The new long player, which is co-produced by Jim Scott (Wilco, Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones) was recorded live at Scott’s PLYRZ studio in Santa Clarita, CA, and features collaborations with The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach on a pair of songs.

“Each song stands upright on its own, but these songs really belong to this album,” says Potter. “The way we’ve always made records is to put together a list of 30 or so songs, pick the best ones, throw them together and hope it congeals. I didn’t want to do that this time. I came up with the track order before we recorded so we could really bring you in and out of these songs like scenes in a movie. I want to bring the listener into our weird fantasy and keep them there.”

Potter will preview songs off the new album at this year’s Coachella festival before kicking off her Brothers of the Sun Tour with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw in June. See below for the full list of tour dates.
