New Release: Joy Williams – Canary / The Trouble With Wanting

Canary and The Trouble With Wanting are two new songs from ex-Civil Wars member and four-time Grammy Award winning artist, Joy Williams

In addition to the official audio, live performance versions of both tracks – filmed at a recent show at The Franklin Theatre – can be viewed below…

Both songs are from Williams’ new album, Front Porch, to be released in 2019. Produced by Kenneth Pattengale of The Milk Carton Kids and engineered by Matt Ross-Spang, Front Porch represents a new chapter in Williams’ career, who recorded the album in Nashville during the pregnancy of her second child. She reflects, “There is an energy that is very creative in having a baby. It gives a sense of urgency on top of all the creative energy. Cellularly, your body is experiencing something really different.”

“So much of this is about coming home,” says Williams. “Whether to a physical place or to yourself. The lines on my face, I can see them more clearly now. But a lot of them are laugh lines. This record feels like breathing more deeply into who I am. Come what may”
