“Love Soldiers On” – New Music from Tift Merritt

Grammy Award-nominated artist Tift Merritt will release her new album, Stitch of the World, on January 27th via Yep Roc Records.

Merritt has released five full-length albums and two live records, including a reissue of her debut album, Bramble Rose, earlier this year. She has performed with the New York Philharmonic and toured with artists as varied as Iron & Wine, Jason Isbell, Elvis Costello, and Gregg Allman.

Stitch of the World, Merritt’s sixth studio album, was written on a friend’s farm in Marfa, Texas, at Merritt’s California cabin, and in New York City in the wake of several major changes in her life. Merritt workshopped the songs on Stitch of the World with longtime friend Sam Beam of Iron & Wine after bumping in to him in an airport. The album was recorded in Los Angeles while Merritt was six months pregnant, after which she relocated to her hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina.
