Jessica Lea Mayfield Releases “Offa My Hands”

Jessica Lea Mayfield’s new song “Offa My Hands” is premiering today at LENNY. Listen to the track HERE.

“Offa My Hands” is the third song unveiled from Mayfield’s anticipated new album, Sorry Is Gone, which will be released September 29 on ATO Records and is now available for pre-order. Of the new music, LENNY asserts, “Mayfield seems primed to enjoy not only another strong album but to harness its moment in the service of others.”

The 11-track record was recorded at Water Music and Electric Lady studios with producer John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Phosphorescent). In addition to Mayfield, the album features a variety of world-renowned musicians including Seth Avett on backing vocals and keys, drummer Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth, Sun Kil Moon), bassist Emil Amos (Grails, Holy Sons) and guitarist Cameron Deyell (Sia, Streets of Laredo.) with additional production from Patrick Damphier (The Mynabirds).

Of the record, Mayfield comments, “The whole record is about me taking my life back, without really realizing it. I realized I’m the only person that is going to look out for me. I have to be my main person. No one else.” She continues, “I have to sing about things and write about things that have happened to me as therapy. That’s what connects me to other music I listen to. I want music to make me feel things. This is my inner dialogue, and my chance to get the last word.”

In support of the release, Mayfield will embark on an extensive tour this fall including shows at NYC’s Baby’s All Right, DC’s Songbyrd, Nashville’s The Basement East and Chicago’s The Empty Bottle among many others. All tickets are now on-sale via See below for complete details.
