This album was a truly collaborative effort, with not only Jeremy Gustin (drums) and Will Graefe (guitar) accompanying me again after our last album “Jesse Harris with Star Rover – No Wrong No Right,” but also Jesse Carmichael on keyboards and guitar and Jason Lader on bass and keyboards – all of whom co-produced the album. Maycon Ananias, who wrote the string arrangements for and played keys on my Rio-de-Janeiro-recorded album Sub Rosa, wrote the string arrangements, which he recorded in Curitiba, Brazil. Petra Haden, with whom I toured much last year in support of our album “Seemed Like a Good Idea – Petra Haden Sings Jesse Harris,” added vocal arrangements. And Gabriela Lucia, who toured with me and Petra on percussion, sang harmonies.

Today we’re premiering the beautiful video for “Sometimes You Have To Choose Sides,” which was shot by two great filmmakers, one German and one Brazilian, on a cross country trip with a drone and a lot of imagination..

Starting March 29 we’ll go on tour in the US, opening for Sean Watkins (of Nickel Creek and The Watkins Family Hour), in the middle of which we also have shows in Japan and China. The full schedule is below.

In other news, Star Rover and I have recorded a new album, which will be released later this year. In the meantime we’ll be playing the new songs at The Manhattan Inn in Greenpoint, Brooklyn March 6. Come on out!
