In 2012, the San Francisco singer-songwriter Jessica Pratt released a self-titled debut full of hushed, skeletal, gorgeous folk songs (like, for instance, the great “Night Faces“). That album snuck up on a lot of people, and those people will be happy to learn that she’ll release her sophomore effort On Your Own Love Again early next year. The first single is “Back, Baby,” a warm and lovely song that has some of the rambling, conversational quality of late-’60s folk music, as well as some absolutely incandescent guitar work. Give it a listen below.
On Your Own Love Again is out 1/27 on Drag City.
