Melissa Ferrick

Melissa Ferrick to release new album inspired by different regions of the US.

Melissa Ferrick has announced the release of her next album, the truth is. The album will be released through MPress Records on June 4th and was recorded with a full band. In the past, Ferrick has often played every instrument on her releases. The new album was recorded in Boston, mixed in Alabama and mastered in Nashville and a lot of those location changes are heard through the album’s music. “This album crosses a lot of borders,” Ferrick says. “It’s got a little bit of the Northeast, a bit of the South, and a bit of Nashville, too.” Ferrick will debut some of the album’s new music today at SXSW.
