Jenny Owen Youngs has announced her first full length studio album in over a decade, ‘Avalanche,’ set for release September 22nd on Yep Roc Records.  It’s an album that draws on a tumultuous series of years – marriage, divorce, grief, new love and marriage, with, just to keep things interesting relocating from Los Angeles where she lived for five years to a small town in coastal Maine.  Well, it fills the time…

Speaking of the album’s title song, written with Madi Diaz, Youngs says: “An avalanche is an extreme force, it can cause great harm, and when it’s over, you can be certain things will be different than they were before.  When it came time to name the album, this song leapt forward as the title track, because the unifying theme of this body of songs, to me, is the idea of moving from destruction to restoration, traveling through pain to possibility.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
