Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Lera Lynn’s anticipated new album, Something More Than Love, is out today. Stream/purchase HERE.

Produced and largely performed by Lynn and her partner Todd Lombardo (Kacey Musgraves, Donovan Woods, Kathleen Edwards), Something More Than Love was written following the birth of Lynn and Lombardo’s first child during the early months of the pandemic. Across these eleven tracks, Lynn chronicles this newfound experience—processing her intimate self-reflections and transforming them into an album that highlights universal themes of renewal, interconnectedness, surrender and sacrifice.

Critical acclaim for Something More Than Love:

“it’s easy to get lost in Lynn’s creamy, dreamy approach, her breathy yet compelling voice, and the life-questioning lyrics that define the album’s overall entrancing soundscape” —American Songwriter

“Jagged-edged early 90s jangle-punk at its Liz Phair-esque best”—Americana Highways

“Quite simply, Something More Than Love is the best record Lera Lynn has made thus far in her career, and it’s one of the standouts of 2022 to date.”—Entertainment Focus

“Lera Lynn captures the conflicted joy of new motherhood on Something More Than Love – and her dystopian folk-noir sound is reborn. On this album, ’80s synth pop and soul stirring orchestral swells join the stark-yet-serene melancholy.”—Nashville Lifestyles

“a captivating soundscape that swells and grooves—organically incorporating synthesizers, string sections and more—without overpowering her insightful and impactful lyrics.” —Nashville Scene

“her songcraft and crystalline vocals are compelling…‘I’m Your Kamikaze’ is uber-hooky, buoyant, hummable, and could easily be covered by any number of popular artists, from Taylor Swift to Charli XCX to Soccer Mommy.”—No Depression

“What better way to explore transformation on the whole, than by blending and bending genres, something Lynn does with skill and remarkable ease”—The Amp

In celebration of the new record, Lynn will tour throughout this fall including newly confirmed headline shows at Seattle’s Tractor Tavern, Portland’s Polaris Hall, San Francisco’s Amado’s, Atlanta’s The Earl, Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk, Los Angeles’ The Peppermint Club and New York’s (Le) Poisson Rouge among others. See below for complete itinerary. Full details can be found at www.leralynn.com/tour.

Reflecting on the record, Lynn shares, “A lot of people were making records during the pandemic, and all they had was time. But it was the opposite experience for us. We created this whole record while still in the fog of early parenthood, and we didn’t have the luxury of waiting for lightning to strike. We had to be focused and intentional,” and continues, “It doesn’t feel like a new direction to me. It just feels like a progression. My fans have come to expect a new experience with each new album. I think people are ready for this sound and this energy. I certainly am.”

In addition to Lynn (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, drums, piano, synth bass) and Lombardo (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keys, bass, strings, slide guitar), Something More Than Love also features Ian Fitchuk (drums), Daniel Tashian (Wurlitzer), Robby Handley (bass), Bennett Dean Lewis (pedal steel), Viktor Krauss (bass), Nat Smith (cello, keys) and Avery Bright (violin).

Something More Than Love is Lynn’s sixth studio album following 2018’s duets record, Plays Well With Others, and 2020’s On My Own, which Lynn wrote, sang, produced and recorded entirely by herself. Released to critical acclaim, Rolling Stone declared, “the most ambitious, daunting, and risky album of her career…it is the sound of someone having faith in their process,” while Relix praised, “The record feels like a creative leap forward for the brand of Nashvillian blues that she’s been honing” and PopMatters proclaims, “As a multi-instrumentalist, Lynn shines, but her vocal performance is the spellbinding element throughout these songs.”

Born in Houston and now based in Nashville, Lynn has amassed a passionate fanbase throughout the past decade. In addition to touring extensively internationally, Lynn also had a recurring role on season two of HBO’s acclaimed show True Detective.
