Lydia Loveless Changes Things Up For New Album

(Radio.com) Lydia Loveless doesn't have a problem speaking her mind, which should make her ex-boyfriends very, very nervous. On her third album Somewhere Else, the 23-year-old Ohioan wanted to take a sophisticated look at love and heartbreak, all while taking the piss out of a few of her former flames. "I thought more about the lyrics and the pain this time around," Loveless told Radio.com over the phone. "I didn't want to make the same album so I do think it was a conscience decision to be more eloquent and I guess, sexy."

"I just wanted to make an album that sounded like, not a diary by a whiney girl, but just something open and sort of pulsing," she explained. "Like when I was writing it and still when I play the songs, I feel sort of cut open. I wanted to get that across without sounding too girly or me talking about my period."

With her previous two releases-2010′s The Only Man and 2012′s Indestructible Machine-Loveless said that she didn't have much of a female audience, even though she was writing about very feminine topics. Instead her bourbon-soaked brand of alt-country was attracting a lot of middle-aged men who were misinterpreting the message.

"I feel like I'm being extremely feminine, but [men] hear it and go, 'Oh, she's really manly' and 'She'll kick your ass,'" Loveless explained. "But no, I'm being extremely girly right now, talking about my feelings, but I happen to be really intense or upset about something. Men take that as sort of threatening." Not that this is such a bad thing in Loveless' book. "I like that being really feminine is threatening and scary," she says with a raspy laugh that makes you feel like she might not kick your ass, but she definitely could. more on this story
