Lake Street Dive will releaseFree Yourself Up, its second album with Nonesuch Records onMay 4. The band --drummer Michael Calabrese, bassist Bridget Kearney, singer Rachael Price, and guitarist/trumpeter Michael "McDuck" Olson --self-produced the album at Goosehead Palace Studios in Nashville with engineer Dan Knobler. Lake Street Dive formed in 2004 while students at New England Conservatoryand have been touring non-stop ever since, growing from basement venues like The Lizard Lounge in Boston, MA to selling out Radio City Music Hall in New York City.For this album, the quartet drafted touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss to join them in the studio. Adding another player to the process freed up the band members to explore a wider range of instrumental textures, construct more full-bodied arrangements, and build on their well-known background harmonies. "This album is based in the realities in our time,"Kearney reflects, "which have inevitably become part of everyone's daily life. It's something you think about and obsess over --and write songs about.Free Yourself Upis about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself, no matter what's going wrong.”
