MP3 From New Rachael Yamagata Album


Also planning extensive tour.


By Blurt


Songbird (and Blurt fave; check photo above) Rachael Yamagata will release Chesapeake, her first studio album in
three years on October 11th, through her own Frankenfish Records. She’s already
posted a song from the album, “Starlight,” for fans to download.


album sees a slight departure from her previous darker piano ballad days,
taking a brighter and poppier approach, with production handled by John Alagia (John Mayer, Jasaon Mraz,
Mandy Moore) Yamagata recruited her “dream team” consisting of Victor Indrizzo
(Sheryl Crow) on drums, guitarists Mike Viola (Candy Butchers), Michael Chaves
(John Mayer), and Kevin Salem (Dump Truck, Yo La Tengo), cellist Oli Kraus (Sia,
Duffy) and Tom Freund on the upright bass.
