Jenny Lewis’ name popped up on a number of festival bills this year, which suggested the follow-up to 2008’s Acid Tongue (or, if you prefer, 2010’s I’m Having Fun Now with Johnathan Rice as Jenny And Johnny) might finally be afoot. That news is confirmed now: Her artist page on the Austin City Limits festival’s website indicates a new Lewis LP will be out this July on Warner Bros., and according to an interview with Lewis in the Charleston City Paper, it’s called The Voyager. What’s more, she debuted four new songs at the Roxy last week: “Slippery Slopes,” “The New You,” “Love U Forever,” and “She’s Not Me.” “Completely Not Me,” her contribution to the latest Girls soundtrack (streaming below), also got a reading. Seems like Lewis is fixating on identity and transformation this time around, eh?
