The Secret Sisters‘ new album ‘Saturn Return’ will be released worldwide on Feb 28th 2020 on New West Records.
Produced by Brandi Carlile, Tim Hanseroth and Phil Hanseroth, the album is now available for pre-order, which includes an immediate download of the new song ‘Late Bloomer’ as well as album tracks “Hand Over My Heart,” “Hold You Dear” and “Cabin.” Already receiving widespread critical acclaim, Rolling Stone declares, “Saturn Return is built on those moments of quiet fury, intimacy, and confession—of finding their place, of learning how to find balance in a world that is anything but. They sing of struggle, of aging, of coming to terms with the realities of life both beautiful and cruel.”
Recorded at Carlile’s home studio in Washington state, the album includes ten songs written by Laura and Lydia Rogers and features the real-life sisters singing individually for the first time instead of relying solely on their trademark harmonies—something Carlile challenged them to do. Carlile comments, “It’s really uniquely unified and harmonious when they’re in tandem and very tumultuous and deep when they’re not in tandem and I think for a brief, beautiful moment on this album we caught The Secret Sisters not in tandem for the first time.” She continues, “To be a harbinger for their honesty in these songs and to watch them work together to see the tension was one of the greatest gifts of my career because those are two very powerful people in a very interesting point in their lives.”
Named after the astrological occurrence that takes place approximately every 29 ½ years, the album heralds the arrival of a new era for Laura and Lydia—both of whom experienced extreme change and transformation during the making of the record. Grappling with the grief of losing both grandmothers, while also both becoming first-time mothers, the sisters reflect on their world view, relationships and own mortality through the album’s ten songs.
