Lake Street Dive Announces New Album, International Tour

Several NY stops on the itinerary.

Lake Street Dive, the Boston-born and Brooklyn-based quartet, is slated to release Free Yourself Up on May 4. It will be their seventh studio release to date, and the second on Nonesuch Records. In keeping with their typical schedule of releasing an album every two years, Free Yourself Up will be the band’s first since 2016’s Side Pony. With more than a decade of recording and touring experience under their belts, nobody knows the intricacies of Lake Street Dive’s sound better than the bandmembers, who, this time around, decided to handle the album production themselves. Dan Knobler engineered the recording, which took place at Goosehead Palace Studios in Nashville with the band—Michael Calabrese (drums), Bridget Kearney (bass), Rachel Price (vocals), and Micahel “McDuck” Olson (guitar/trumpet)—who were joined in the studio by touring keyboardist Akie Bermiss.

In support of the new album, Lake Street Dive is embarking on a lengthy international tour that features many dates across North America, including several stops in New York.
