JENNY LEWIS SCORES FIRST EVER TOP 10 DEBUT WITH NEW SOLO ALBUM THE VOYAGER

 

THE VOYAGER IS ALSO NO. 1 VINYL ALBUM AND NO. 2 ALTERNATIVE ALBUM IN THE U.S.

 

August 14th, 2014 –  Burbank, CA – The Voyager – the new solo album from Jenny Lewis – has bowed at No. 9 on Billboard‘s Top 200 Album chart, selling nearly 31,000 copies in its first two weeks. This is the celebrated California singer-songwriter’s first Top 10 album and highest chart debut ever, including the albums she released with her former band Rilo Kiley and with her side project Jenny and Johnny with Johnathan Rice.

 

In addition, The Voyager debuted at No. 1 on the Vinyl Albums chart and No. 2 on the Alternative Albums chart. The album is currently available for purchase on cassette viaBurger Recordshere.

 

What critics have said about The Voyager:

 

“A rewarding journey.” – Rolling Stone

 

“Jenny Lewis has done her best work as a solo artist, and The Voyager continues the trend.” – Chicago Tribune

 

“The whole album is full of little moments of wonder.  The most polished, intelligent and damn near perfect record of not just her career, but of the decade so far. Buy this immediately.” – Press Play

 

“Arguably her strongest work to date.”  – TIME

 

“Her best solo effort to date” – American Songwriter

 

Over the weekend, Lewis performed her current single “Just One Of The Guys” on CBS Saturday Morning (watch here) and also played a sold-out show at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. She will appear on Conan on August 18th.

 

The Voyager is Lewis’s most deeply personal album to date, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of Rilo Kiley. The Voyager‘s rootsy, golden glow comes courtesy of Lewis and the artists she chose to produce various tracks, including Ryan Adams (who, alongside Mike Viola, produced all but three of the tracks), Beck, and Lewis’ longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice. The Voyager finds the always relatable songwriter at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent experiences with honesty and incisiveness.
