|Laney Jones Returns With New Album “Stories Up High” Out May 20 via AHPO Records. Watch the animated video for the single release here.|
|Recorded in Nashville with producer Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Langhorne Slim), the collection is lush and immersive, with rich, elegant arrangements that ebb and flow beneath Jones’ velveteen vocals. Throughout the tracklist are infectious and upbeat crescendos (“Secret Weapon”), punchy pop rock singalongs (“Not Alone”), dreamy and melancholic folk (“If Life Is”), and floating vintage patinas (“One Fine Morning”). The performances here evoke faded, old Hollywood glamour full of longing, but dig beneath the surface and you’ll find that Jones is an optimist at heart, a believer in the relentless beauty of this world.|
Stories Up High follows Jones’ 2013 debut, Golden Road, which landed her a nationally televised performance at The Kennedy Center, and 2016’s Laney Jones, which prompted Rolling Stone to dub her an Artist You Need To Know. To date, Jones’ songs have racked up millions of streams, soundtracked films from Disney and Pixar, and turned up in commercials for Google, Netflix, Toyota, and Red Bull among others.
