The Weather Station, a.k.a. singer-songwriter Tamara Lindeman, has announced details of new album How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars. The album is the follow-up to 2021's Ignorance. How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars is out on March 4 via Fat Possum. Check out new song "Endless Time" below.
How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars was written at the same time as Ignorance and is intended to be heard as a companion piece to that album, according to a press release. "These are songs written at the same time that connect emotionally and deal with many of the same themes: disconnection and conflict, love, birds, and climate feelings," the statement reads.
“When I wrote Ignorance, it was a time of intense creativity, and I wrote more songs than I ever had in my life," Lindeman says. "The songs destined to be on the album were clear from the beginning, but as I continued down my writing path, songs kept appearing that had no place on the album I envisioned. Songs that were simple, pure; almost naive. Songs that spoke to many of the same questions and realities as Ignorance, but in a more internal, thoughtful way. So I began to envision How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars, a quiet, strange album of ballads. I imagined it not as a followup to Ignorance, but rather as a companion piece; the moon to its sun.”
