Julie Byrne releasing ‘Not Even Happiness’ on Ba Da Bing, playing shows
Julie Byrne is following 2014’s Rooms With Walls and Windows with her sophomore album and first for Ba Da Bing, Not Even Happiness, on January 13. The first songs released are “Natural Blue” and “Follow My Voice,” both gorgeous, atmospheric doses of dream-folk that fans of anyone from Vashti Bunyan to Hope Sandoval should check out. Listen below.
The New York-based artist plays a hometown show a couple weeks after the album comes out, on January 27 at Rough Trade. Tickets for that show go on sale today (12/14) at noon.
No other dates announced at the moment.
UPDATE: Julie also opens the sold-out Whitney show at Rough Trade on 1/5, and has shows in DC and Philly (the latter with Shamir and Vagabon). All dates are listed below.
