JennyLee has announced the release of her second solo album, ‘Heart Tax,’ which was created in collaboration with Record Store Day 2022. The album is made up of six singles which was published over the last two years, as well as six new tracks for Record Store Day (April 23).

Goldensuns, Warpaint, Belief and Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa, Depeche Mode’s Dave Gahan, and Trentemller collaborated on the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Right On!’

The Gahan-featuring ‘Stop Speaking,’ the Trentemller-produced single ‘Tickles,’ and B-side ‘Heart Tax,’ and ‘Newtopia’ are among the songs from the album that have already been published.

“A large amount of the album was assembled during the final few years of uncertainty, starting in the joy of southern California, and finishing in the stillness of Salt Lake City,” according to a description of the record’s genesis.

JennyLee was able to ‘reach the depths’ of her imagination in ways she had never been able to before during this perplexing period. JennyLee has developed an album that embodies her present-day self, filled with long-standing pent-up feelings that were unavailable to her until recently, by letting go of ‘past baggage and energy.’

‘Radiate Like This,’ Warpaint’s first album in six years, will be released in May. ‘Champion,’ the album’s first single, was released lately. Following the release of the record, Warpaint will go on a UK and European headline tour this summer, culminating in a performance at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound festival.
