The album was self-produced by Larkin Poe from their home studio. Pre-orders are available now and can be found here.
“Rolling in the family minivan in the late ‘90s, we remember hearing ‘Fly Away’ spun endlessly on the radio — an undeniable anthem,” say Rebecca and Megan Lovell. “The energy of this song is a chameleon: simultaneously a cry for adventure and a prayer for those who feel trapped. Giving it a bluesy twist with the slide guitar riff brought it home to Georgia.”
“For the video, we wanted to create a visual decoupage that would span the swamps of Louisiana to the volcanoes of Hawaii. The lyrics of the song are powerfully open-ended and so we decided to fully embrace that concept by gluing together a hodgepodge of footage gleaned from the Prelinger Archives; beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
