Sophie B. Hawkins To Release Highly Anticipated 6th Album ‘The Crossing’ on June 19, 2012

5/16/2012 – Sherman, Oaks, CA – Lightyear Entertainment, in association with Trumpet Swan Records, is proud to announce the release of the brilliant new studio album from Sophie B. Hawkins, entitled ‘The Crossing’.

The album will be released through EMI in the U.S. and Canada on June 19, 2012. European distribution will be through in-akustik, who will release the album simultaneously.

Since her breakthrough with the indelible hit single “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” and her acclaimed debut album ‘Tongues and Tails’, Hawkins has proved an enduring artist with a fierce commitment to constantly evolving, while remaining steadfastly true to her own authentic history and experience. This comes to the fore as she breaks open her heart without reservation on ‘The Crossing’, her long-awaited first album of new songs in several years. It is a searing, lush and startlingly naked chronicle of the most intense period of Hawkins’ life. All of this emerges in songwriting and vocals that mix the brashly playful and the unabashedly poignant in fresh ways for Hawkins.

“The album is entirely me with just drums, bass, guitar and flugel,” says Sophie. “I didn’t hire a band – I would just meet one musician at a time and have them come to the house to record and it was a very spacious and organic process. I became an engineer really by instinct. I kept things very simple and told the musicians to have fun. It felt like it unfolded all on its own – I really wanted to retain the feel of these songs that were written completely in the moment and I think we did. I felt lucky just to be there watching this be created.”

This is the third Sophie B. Hawkins album released by Lightyear, after 2004’s ‘Wilderness’, and the live double set ‘Bad Kitty Board Mix’ in 2006. The album contains 13 new songs plus 4 bonus tracks, including new acoustic versions of her biggest hits, “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” and “As I Lay Me Down.”

“I’m delighted to release another beautiful album from Sophie,” said Lightyear CEO Arnie Holland. “She’s a true artist with a unique voice.”
