The Mynabirds ready Lovers Know, tour (2015)

The Mynabirds third full-length album, Lovers Know, will be released August 7 via Saddle Creek, and is now available as an exclusive “First Listen” on NPR Music.
Led by Laura Burhenn and produced by Bradley Hanan Carter of Black English, the album explores influences of 80s, 90s, and futuristic soundscapes, while recalling Kate Bush, Sinead O’Connor, Jesus and Mary Chain, and My Bloody Valentine. The result is arguably one of Burhenn’s most personal and confessional works to date, yet also her most accessible, delving deep into universal themes of love, loss, and seeking connection. The first two singles from the album are “Semantics” and “Wildfire” which are now available to hear and share on YouTube.
“Love – or the lack of it – is the thing we all have in common,” notes Burhenn about the themes weaving together the new album. “It can destroy us. It can break us open and let the light in. And it’s also the thing that can make us sing.”
Lovers Know is Available for Pre-Order Now:  Saddle Creek and iTunes
