The Weather Station has announced a new album. How Is It That I Should Look at the Stars is a companion piece to 2021’s Ignorance. It’s out March 4 via Fat Possum and features songs written at the same time as Ignorance. The first single is “Endless Time.” Watch the video below.
“When I wrote Ignorance, it was a time of intense creativity, and I wrote more songs than I ever had in my life,” the Weather Station’s Tamara Lindeman said in a statement. “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 follow-up to Ignorance, but rather as a companion piece; the moon to its sun.”
The album, co-produced with Jean Martin, features no percussion. Lindeman is joined by Christine Bougie, Karen Ng, Ben Whiteley, Ryan Driver, and Tania Gill.
