The Lion The Beast The Beat, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals’ fourth studio album was released June 5, 2012. Here's the Bing Lounge session from July 19th.
She's not the hippie chick we met a few years ago. There have been a few personnel changes as well. The shows are "electric and sexy". That, says Grace is something she wanted to approach head on. Said Grace in a recent interview, "Regardless of how you choose to move onstage, regardless of lyrically what you choose to sing, the importance of sexuality can't be understated," Potter explained. "Music and sex are one thing; they go together. One is not there without the other, because most songs I write are about love and relationships and that fire. And what happens when that fire goes out." The Lion The Beast The Beat
The musically powerful and conceptually dazzling work was produced by Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Wilco, the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s 2012 Grammy winner Revelator) and Potter at Scott’s studio PLYRZ in Santa Clarita, CA, with the exception of “Loneliest Soul,” which was produced by Dan Auerbach, written by Auerbach and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, and engineered by Collin Dupuis at Easy Eye Sounds in Nashville, TN. David Campbell (Beck, My Morning Jacket, Jackson Browne) arranged and conducted the strings on the album. The album was mixed by fellow Vermonter and Grammy award winner Rich Costey (Foo Fighters, TV on the Radio, Bruce Springsteen’s Wrecking Ball) and mastered by Grammy award winner Bob Ludwig (David Bowie, Rolling Stones, Radiohead, Foo Fighters).
