A thoughtful, sensitive, personal collection of songs, Tift Merritt‘s stellar new album Stitch of the World is here! Tift once again has plucked a top supporting cast for the album which includes Marc Ribot and lap-steel specialist Eric Heywood on guitars, drummer extraordinaire Jay Bellerose and the wonderful Jennifer Condos on bass. 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.
