Jess Williamson announces new LP & tour, shares “Wind on Tin”

Jess Williamson - Sorceress

Jess Williamson released her third album, Cosmic Wink, in 2018, and she’s preparing to follow it with a new one, Sorceress, due out on May 15 via Mexican Summer. That’s the cover art above, and you can see the tracklisting below. The first single is the folky, psychy singer-songerwriter track “Wind on Tin,” and about it, she says, “grief has a way of making the veil between worlds very thin. Prior to the memorial service, I was sitting on a porch passing around a guitar and drinking beers with a few very dear people in my life who I look up to greatly and who were very close to the person who had passed. We heard an unexplainable sound in the wind that made us all pause. Like a flute, but more angelic. It kept going. We tried, unsuccessfully, to record it. The sound was indescribably beautiful and heavenly. “Were the angels singing just for us, or is that what the wind out here does on tin?” Regardless of the answer, I know that for that brief moment we were lucky initiates into the mystery realm, and I’m deeply grateful.” Listen below.

Jess is going on a North American tour supporting the new album, starting in San Diego on May 31 and hitting Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Washington DC, Atlanta, Austin and more. The Brooklyn show happens at Union Pool on June 19, and tickets go on sale Friday 2/28 at 10 AM. See all dates below.
