New from Della Mae, their first full-length in five years!

Boldly breaking genre convention, the Grammy Award-nominated band Della Mae pushed beyond their bluegrass roots and followed their instinct to their most sonically adventurous body of work to date with Headlight.

In lyrics, Della Mae has fully embraced the album's potential as a platform for change, delivering a collection of 12 songs at turns fearlessly personal and powerfully resonant. As their most collaborative work yet, the album features an exceptional lineup of guest musicians, often contributing on instruments entirely new to Della Mae's output: keys, drums, and electric guitar.

Throughout Headlight, Della Mae imbues their songs with the unshakable sense of purpose they've embodied since first getting together. Formed in Boston in 2009 with ambitions of disrupting the male-dominated music scene, the band has proven undeniably ahead of their time in placing women at the forefront.

"From the beginning this band has been about reclaiming or changing the conversation for women, especially those whose stories haven't been told," explains Ludiker. Throughout the years, Della Mae has worked toward that goal by teaming up with the U.S. State Department and traveling to more than 30 countries in an effort to improve opportunities for women all across the globe. "Advocating for women's rights is the backbone of this band, and we realized that adding public service work to our touring was an important way we could make a difference."
