(Division) 3X GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Grace Potter shares "Masterpiece," the finale track from Mother Road, her "dynamite new album" (Guitar Player) out this Friday, August 18, 2023, via Fantasy Records. A coming-of-age autobiography in cabaret-pop form, "Masterpiece" envisions Potter's libertine young adulthood𑁋and the lust for life that propelled her out into the world in whimsical detail.
"'Masterpiece' came from going back home, driving by my high school every day, and feeling childhood memories rushing back, one of the silver linings of going back home," Potter shares. "The kids I'd grown up with were there with a million stories about me, every story got weirder and wilder than the last. But I love that that's how they remembered me and that I'm living those stories out through Mother Road."
Produced by Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age, Nickel Creek) and recorded at RCA's famed Studio A in Nashville and Topangadise in Topanga, CA, Mother Road - the follow-up to Potter's 2019 acclaimed, 2X GRAMMY-nominated album, Daylight - finds the rock and soul artist deconstructing her deepest fears and darkest regrets and charting the fallout with brutal honesty and emotional daring.
Throughout the album's 10 original tracks, Potter, along with contributions from top-flight musicians, commands an expansive soundscape of soulful rock, roots, funk, country, and R&B. Watch the Mother Road album trailer HERE.
