Erin Rae Shares New Track “Putting On Airs”

Indie singer-songwriter Erin Rae shared the title track from her upcoming album Putting On Airs. The album is scheduled to release on June 8 via Single Lock Records.

Fusing together folk, indie rock, and 1960s psych rock, the album was recorded midwinter in Appleton, Wisconsin at The Refuge, a monastery-turned-arts space. Production techniques were inspired by artists of the’60s, including The Beatles and Francoise Hardy, while also bringing in minimalism inspired by artists like Angel Olsen and Micheal Nau.

Putting On Airs follows Rae’s 2015 debut, Soon Enough, released independently under Erin Rae and the Meanwhiles. After the debut, she was signed to Single Lock Records, the Alabama-based label run by John Paul White (formerly of The Civil Wars). This spring, Rae will go on tour, supporting dates with the Mountain Goats and Margo Price.
