"Jessica Lea Mayfield is sweet and lonesome, and maybe a little mischievous, on this, the beautiful, gentle country-rock title track from her coming fourth studio album." — The New York Times
Jessica Lea Mayfield's new album is Sorry Is Gone, out now on ATO Records. Sorry Is Gone is Mayfield's first solo album since 2014's Make My Head Sing, which was released to widespread acclaim. Of the album, Rolling Stone asserted, "...Mayfield's echo-laden bluegrass vocals mesh with scorching electric guitar lines to render remarkable results," while Pitchfork praised, "There's something certainly compelling about this raw, minimalist sound" and NPR's Fresh Air proclaimed, "The music is heavy, but it soars."
The 11 tracks on Sorry Is Gone was recorded at Water Music and Electric Lady studios with producer John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Phosphorescent). In addition to Mayfield, the album features a variety of world-renowned musicians including Seth Avett on backing vocals and keys, drummer Steve Shelley (Sonic Youth, Sun Kil Moon), bassist Emil Amos (Grails, Holy Sons) and guitarist Cameron Deyell (Sia, Streets of Laredo.) with additional production from Patrick Damphier (The Mynabirds).
Of the record, Mayfield comments, "The whole record is about me taking my life back, without really realizing it. I realized I'm the only person that is going to look out for me. I have to be my main person. No one else." She continues, "I have to sing about things and write about things that have happened to me as therapy. That's what connects me to other music I listen to. I want music to make me feel things. This is my inner dialogue, and my chance to get the last word."
