BlindedBySound favorite Eden Brent has announced the tracklisting and revealed cover art for her third full-length album for Yellow Dog Records, Jigsaw Heart, which will be released May 6.
The three-time Blues Music Award-winning pianist/vocalist is following-up her acclaimed 2010 effort Ain't Got No Troubles. Colin Linded produced that record and returns to produce Jigsaw Heart.
Brent gets instrumental assistance from Linden, who also supplies guitar and mandolin. Bass chores are shared by John Dymond and Stephen Mackey and drum duties are split between Gary Craig and Bryan Owings. Dan Dugmore provides pedal steel, Kenzie Wetz plays fiddle, and Chris Carmichael adds violin, viola, and cello.
Brent wrote six of the 12 tracks on the album and Linden co-wrote one with blues super producer Tom Hambridge ("Valentine").
It's been a long four-year wait so I'm ultra excited about this release. I'm also excited to see "Locomotive" made the final cut for the album because Brent was already working on it when I met her at the BMAs. She sang a short clip of it that night and I've been waiting to hear what it would sound like when it was finished. We're one step closer to knowing with less than a month to go.
Here is the complete tracklisting for Jigsaw Heart:
- Better This Way
- Everybody Already Knows
- Jigsaw Heart
- I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free
- The Last Time
