Jenny Lewis, former lead singer for Rilo Kiley, will release her third solo album The Voyager on July 29. This is Lewis’ first solo album in six years and her most personal, detailing the loss of her father as well as the breakup of her former band.

“Making The Voyager got me through one of the most difficult periods of my life,” Lewis said. “After Rilo Kiley broke up and a few really intense personal things happened, I completely melted down. It nearly destroyed me. I had such severe insomnia that, at one point, I didn’t sleep for five straight nights. Many of the songs on The Voyager came out of the need to occupy my mind in the moments when I just couldn’t shut down.”

Lewis collaborated with Ryan Adams on the album, which was recoded in Adams’ new studio Pax AM, at Sunset Sound in Los Angeles.

“Ryan and I didn’t know each other very well before this album — we had hardly even listened to one another’s music, to be honest. But I trusted the vision, and Ryan ended up being the person to get me over the fear of finishing something I’d been working on for so long.  This record was the hardest one I ever made,” Lewis said. “The Voyager tells that story: the longest night of my life and the journey to finally getting some rest.”
