Sixpence None The Richer Resurface With New Album

Sixpence None The Richer will return on August 7th with 'Lost In Transition,' its first studio album in a decade. We were sent these details:

The title is a reference to the band's 2004 breakup. "It's about things that happened in our lives recently, personal events or on a musical level," explains Matt Slocum, who founded the band with singer Leigh Nash in 1992. "We had a transition to go through. And now we have."

'Lost In Transition' was produced by Jim Scott (Wilco, Tom Petty, Dixie Chicks) at PLYRZ Studios in Los Angeles and was recorded live with minimal overdubbing. Unlike previous Sixpence albums, 'Transition' is centered on a stripped-down approach to music. It is a gorgeous mix of infectious hooks, piano, acoustic guitars, a bit of country and a newfound and beautiful simplicity to the songs.

Nash and Slocum also shared the songwriting duties on the album and describe the process as an unspoken dialogue. "It was like we were writing songs to each other about what was happening in our lives," said Nash. The result is some of the most candid and dark material on any of the band's records. Examples include "Sooner Or Later," a song Nash wrote with her husband about the death of her father, and "Failure," which is a song about "the dread and underlying fear of something bad happening," Slocum explains.
