Olivia Jean announces new LP & tour, shares “Trouble”

The Black Belles co-founder, singer/songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Olivia Jean has announced her third solo LP, Raving Ghost, due May 5 via Third Man Records (pre-order). The Detroit-born, Nashville-based artist also shared “Trouble,” the assertive, classic-punk-inspired first single. “Ever since I was a kid, writing songs and playing guitar has been an addiction that nothing else can touch,” Olivia Jean says. “My guitar is an appendage. I could never put my guitar down even if I tried.” Listen to “Trouble” below.

Raving Ghost is Olivia’s first album since 2019’s Night Owl, and it includes a cover of Enya’s “Orinocco Flow,” and contributions by My Morning Jacket keyboardist Bo Koster, Jellyfish co-founder Roger Joseph Manning Jr., and drummers Carla Azar and Patrick Keeler. Check out the full tracklist and artwork below.

Olivia Jean has also announced a tour following the release of Raving Ghost, including an appearance at Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival. See all dates below.

The tour includes an NYC show on May 11 at Mercury Lounge. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 3 at 10am local.
