“[How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars] is a record that makes you hold your breath. A record you want to draw close. It is quite simply stunning.”

- Uncut, 10/10

The Weather Station will release her new album, How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars, this Friday, March 4th, via Fat Possum. Today, she reveals a new single/video, “To Talk About,” a frank meditation on love. Its lyrics are beautifully plaintive, conceptualizing intimate moments of expression: “When there is too much midnight to ever express, to listen to his breath, and to lay again my head on his chest. I am lazy, I only want to talk about love.Tamara Lindeman’s voice is cushioned by piano, later joined by Ryan Driver’s tenor.

How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars is intended to be heard as a companion piece to Ignorance. These are songs written at the same time that connect emotionally and deal with many of the same themes: disconnection and conflict, love, birds, and climate feelings. It is an album of immense sensitivity, a recording of a band and a person daring to reach towards softness without apology.

How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars was recorded live off the floor at Toronto’s Canterbury Music Studios from March 10-12, 2020. With Jean Martin co-producing, Lindeman sang and played piano live while the band improvised their accompaniment; Christine Bougie on guitar and lap steel, Karen Ng on saxophone and clarinet, Ben Whiteley on upright bass, Ryan Driver on piano, flute, and vocals, and Tania Gill on wurlitzer, rhodes, and pianet. Recorded live in just three days, How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars is achingly intimate; full of breath, silence, and detail.

Following a sold out North American tour, recording a Jimmy Kimmel Live! And KEXP session along the way. The Weather Station will finally arrive in Europe on the 13th March to play shows for the first time since the release of Ignorance. The Weather Station will aslo present an intimate, solo performance of the entire new album tomorrow, Thursday, March 3rd at 9pm EST via a Bandcamp livestream. Tickets are $10 and are on sale now.
