Portland artist Kassi Valazza is preparing to release her sophomore LP, Kassi Valazza Knows Nothing, due out May 26 via Fluff & Gravy Records. We're premiering the latest single, "Corners," a twangy ballad taking influence from '70s Americana and gentle, folky psychedelia. About it, Kassi says:

On this album, everything was recorded live, all the vocals and instrumentation. We recorded in a room together with TK and The Holy Know-Nothings, who hadn't heard any of the songs before we went into the studio. You're rarely going to find a songwriter that writes and composes every single song; it's a combination of people working things out together, of what I want and what the band hears. When people don't know the songs, it’s a lot looser and more magic can happen. You don't overthink it. One thing I really loved about recording 'Corners' in particular was watching the guys do the four-part harmonies. It finally felt like the song was coming together. I also made a point to have no electric guitar to add to those breezy Eagles sounds, making it the only track on the album without electric guitar.

Listen to "Corners" below.
