Iron & Wine‘s Sam Beam serves as co-producer and backup singer on what marks Merritt’s sixth studio release.

Tift on her album title: “for my 40th birthday, I rented a cabin in California. It had such an amazing vista — the Pacific forever, cliffs, trees and stars — it didn’t seem real. I thought how lucky I was, and about invisible ties that link us to one another and to the world. And sewing — it’s a delicate thing. You can pull too hard or get thread twisted or torn. You’ve got to be careful – and still go blindly and joyfully forward.” The album features singles “Dusty Old Man”, “Love Soldiers On”, and “Heartache Is an Uphill Climb”. Merritt delivers a poignant set and is currently on tour through May 2017! Order HERE.

Stitch of the World, Merritt’s sixth studio album, was written on a friend’s farm in Marfa, Texas, at Merritt’s California cabin and in New York City in the wake of several major changes in her life.

Merritt workshopped the songs on Stitch of the World with longtime friend Sam Beam of Iron & Wine after bumping in to him in an airport. The album was recorded in Los Angeles while Merritt was six months pregnant, after which she relocated to her hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina. Pre-order HERE!
