Joan As Police Woman’s new album, The Deep Field, is available digitally via Joan’s website and iTunes today. PIAS will release the CD and vinyl with a bonus track on April 12. Also released today is the steamy Lynchian video for lead single “The Magic”.
Watch it here.
The Deep Field is Joan As Police Woman’s most stirring work to date, full of her inimitable hybrid of soul and indie rock. Album opener “Nervous” is one of Joan’s most adventurous songs with a stomping rhythm and drones are underscored by her heart-breaking voice. The seductive horn and string arrangements of“ Action Man” wrap themselves around her tale of someone’s desire to set things in motion. “Human Condition” is a testament to Joan’s fearless way of expressing love and hope without masking it with metaphor. “I Was Everyone” begins with a laid-back organ groove before Joan lets her voice go and the song ascends to its thundering climax.
Joan As Police Woman has been championed by as well as played and recorded with artists including Lou Reed, Sheryl Crow, Scissor Sisters, Rufus Wainright, and Antony and the Johnsons. The Deep Field is her fourth studio album.
