It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Abby Jeanne. Aside from headlining last year’s WMSE Backyard BBQ, the New York—by way of Milwaukee—singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist was last on our radar in 2020 when she released covers of “Somebody To Love“ by Jefferson Airplane and The Shag’s “Stop And Listen.” While those tremendous takes on classic songs were great ways to hold listeners over (especially The Shag song!), we’re about ready for some new Abby Jeanne originals.
Thankfully, she has a brand new single that came out today. “That’s Where We Are” is the first song Abby Jeanne is releasing as part of a newly-minted relationship with Eraserhood Sound (an imprint of Colemine Records). The digital-only single is a throwback to the ’70s that finds Abby Jeanne’s soulful and altogether incomparable voice melding with funk-infused instrumentation to forge a song that’s hopeful and poised for positive change…that also makes you want to get up and dance.
“This song really stands alone and it is my first co-write with Jenna Rades, who plays guitar in the Abby Jeanne band. It’s hands down the most intricate and experimental composition I have been a part of writing to date,” Abby Jeanne says. “It represents the beginning of an entire new chapter for me, which parallels the changes and challenges many have been facing in the world.”
As we wait for more to come from Abby Jeanne and Eraserhood Sound in the near future, you can listen to “That’s Where We Are” below.
