One of the most praised albums of 2020 was WAXAHATCHEE‘s
– born Katie Crutchfield – fifth longplayer SAINT CLOUD.
A deluxe edition of Saint Cloud is out now, including three covers. Lucinda Williams’
Fruits Of My Labor, Dolly Parton’s Light Of A Clear Blue Morning, and my favorite
(although I still like the original more), Bruce Springsteen’s Streets Of Philadelphia.
A song The Boss wrote for the 1993 movie Philadelphia. A moody beauty.

WAXAHATCHEE aka KATIE CRUTCHFIELD releases her fifth album, titled ‘SAINT CLOUD‘ on 27 March. After sharing lead-single ‘Fire’ last month here’s another new one. Although ‘LILACS‘ isn’t an optimistic song as it’s about “backsliding into old behaviors that don’t serve you and sort of letting your worst self get the best of you” it sounds uplifting and light-hearted. A bit folky and country balancing between Dolly Parton and Lucinda Williams.
