Laura Veirs Announces New Album ‘Phone Orphans’, Shares New Single

Portland, OR-based artist Laura Veirs has announced a new album called Phone Orphans. The follow-up to last year’s Found Light comes out November 3 via her own Raven Marching Band Records. Lead single ‘Rocks of Time’, which is out today, “was written about my beloved brother and devoted uncle Scott Veirs,” Veirs explained. Check it out below.

Veirs made the 14-track LP by sorting through 8 years worth of voice memos on her phone. “It feels good, on my 50th birthday and after 30 years of writing songs, to bring these ‘Phone Orphans’ into the light,” Veirs said in a press release. “These songs have been hiding out on my phone, some of them for over eight years. They are about my family, my lovers and me. I recorded them alone in my living room into my voice memo app. I like their relaxed feel. These songs were mastered but we made no edits to the recordings. I hope you enjoy this intimate glimpse into my artistic process. All songs by me except ‘Up is a Nice Place to Be’ by Rosalie Sorrels and ‘The Archers’ with lyrics adapted from a poem by Federico García Lorca.”
