Natalie's sixth studio album is due May 6 on Nonesuch Records. For this self-titled and self-produced collection, her first offering of completely original material in
13 years, Natalie has returned to her core band of musicians augmented by strings, brass, and woodwinds to create sparse to lush arrangements. The album represents
over a decade of songwriting that she describes as "taking the measure of lives lived by surveying the damage: love gained and lost, regret, denial, surrender, greed,
destructiveness, defeat, and occasional triumph."
