The new album from Joan As Police Woman with her incredible band, captured live in the studio in New York documenting their 2018 ‘Damned Devotion’ world tour. In a year when most of the world pressed ‘Pause’ Joan has guested on the new Gorillaz album, released her second album of covers (‘Cover Two’), written a new studio album (expected in late 2021) and finished work on ‘Live’.
Recorded live at Faraway Jazz Studios New York at the end of 2018 and mixed during lockdown, this is an oft-requested, long-awaited chance to hear Joan As Police Woman and her amazing band in all their free, live expansive glory.
Joan Wasser: “Between the time ‘Damned Devotion’ was released on Feb 14th 2018 and when we recorded the live album on November 27th, 2018 we had been on the road for a good six months. The show we presented at the first gig in Istanbul was very different from the hometown show we played in NYC upon our return. Music is a living thing that grows and morphs and fills each new space like water. This album is the record of this progression. Parker Kindred, Jacob Silver, Eric Lane and I love playing together. This fact is clear if you’ve had the chance to catch us live. Over time, we developed a trust and dedication to creating music in the moment and rolling with it as it finds new expression. Each night felt like taking a new path through an enchanted forest.
