The track and its accompanying video debuted via Consequence of Sound. Those in New York City and Los Angeles will be able to catch Mara on June 8 at The Mercury Lounge (supporting The Pierces) and onAugust 29 at The Moroccan Lounge, respectively.


Mara and Langhorne recorded “Someone New” to tape at the Bomb Shelter in East Nashville with producer Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Margo Price). It features some of Nashville’s finest: Jon Estes (guitar, bass, piano), Dave Racine (drums) and Billy Bennett (harmonies). “Someone New” marks the second single from her upcoming debut album.

The “Someone New” music video was co-directed by Mara and her filmmaker mom Kate Connor, edited by Ross Kolton and shot by Schuyler Howie. It takes a behind the scenes look at the genesis of the song and captures the analog recording process at the East Nashville studio.

Mara and Langhorne met briefly at a concert at City Winery in New York. Later that year Mara found herself recording her debut album at the Bomb Shelter in East Nashville, where Langhorne had also coincidentally recorded. After hearing his voice on the radio, singing on NPR’s World Cafe, she knew she wanted him to sing on the duet.
