Fran streaming debut album, on tour now, playing SXSW 2020

Fran Private Picture

Chicago’s Fran (the project of Maria Jacobson) is releasing her debut album, A Private Picture, this Friday (11/15) via Fire Talk. We recently posted a few singles, and now you can stream the full album ahead of its rerlease. It’s got some indie/folk/country crossover in the Angel Olsen/Big Thief/etc realm, some twee-ish indie pop in the classic Slumberland/Sarah Records realm, and more, and it saves its most ambitious song for last, ending with the seven+ minute orchestral chamber pop of “Desert Wanderer.” It’s a great record all around, and you can hear it below via Hype Machine.

Fran is on tour now, playing Boston tonight (11/13) and then Brooklyn’s Alphaville on Thursday (11/14) with Lionlimb, Youbet, and Crosslegged (tickets). She was also just announced for SXSW 2020 today. All dates are listed below.
