Tancred debut new song “Control Me” – New album out April 1st on Polyvinyl‏

Polyvinyl Records and Tancred are excited to share, “Control Me”, the latest single off Out of the Garden, the forthcoming April 1st LP from the talented musician and songwriter also known as Jess Abbott. Produced by That Dog’s Anna Waronker and Off!/Redd Kross member Steven McDonald, Out of the Garden has already been hailed as a “phenomenal” new album by NPR Music. “Control Me” premieres today via USA Today’s For the Win, who note that “If you’re a fan of The Breeders (and how could you not be?) this is a song you will love.” Tancred are in the midst of a national spring tour in support of the album.

Written over a two-year period during a break from touring, Out of the Garden’s emphasis on re-defining feminine expectations was shaped by primary songwriter Jess Abbott’s experiences living in Minneapolis and working at a liquor store in a rough part of town. “I learned how to speak up when I needed to and how to truly be myself without reservation,” Abbott recalls. “I felt afraid walking home at night, and after a couple of months I just got sick of it and started getting into self-defense and self-empowerment as a means of coping. Finding my own strength changed everything.”
After writing and tracking every song in her apartment, Abbott enlisted Kevin Medina and Terrence Vitali to add drums and bass to her demos. The band then traveled to LA to record with McDonald and Waronker. As a result, Out of the Garden showcases Tancred shedding its former skin in favor of a bolder and infinitely more confident sound. Says Abbott, “Out of the Garden represents doing what you want, what you need, without letting anything or anyone stop you – and smiling while you do it.”
