Ani DiFranco REVOLUTIONARY LOVE

Singer/songwriter/feminist/activist/author DIY icon Ani DiFranco announces her 22nd album REVOLUTIONARY LOVE, set for release January 29, 2021 on her Righteous Babe Records label. REVOLUTIONARY LOVE is DiFranco’s first studio album since her acclaimed 2019 memoir No Walls and the Recurring Dream.  Rooted in her poetic lyricism and ever-commanding vocal work, the album unfolds in an understated yet captivating alchemy of folk and soul and lushly textured jazz-pop. The title track, a bold message of irrepressible hope, is available today, along with previously released songs ‘Do or Die’ and ‘Contagious’.

REVOLUTIONARY LOVE (inspired by Valarie Kaur’s book See No Stranger) is a natural evolution for DiFranco, who has often seen her songs as reflections of not only her personal life but also society at large. With the current divisions and strife in our world, DiFranco sees ‘Revolutionary Love’ as a vital next step. She says, “It’s about carrying the energy of love and compassion into the centre of our social movements and making it the driving force. It’s about finding it within ourselves to stay curious about our opponents instead of shutting down.”

DiFranco wrote many of the new tracks on the road prior to returning home to New Orleans in February 2020. While the country soon encountered COVID and solitary lives, DiFranco felt the urgent need to collaborate creatively and record.  With her activism at the forefront, she recalls, “I felt very strongly that I needed a horse to ride to try to help get out the vote—to get people inspired and get them believing in democracy, believing in each other and in themselves.”

DiFranco headed to Durham NC, where she teamed up with Brad Cook to record REVOLUTIONARY LOVE with an eclectic group of musicians. The line-up included percussionist Brevan Hampden (Hiss Golden Messenger, Milton Suggs), horn/flute player Matt Douglas (The Mountain Goats, Josh Ritter), keyboardist Phil Cook (Megafaun, Shouting Matches), drummer Yan Westerlund (Quetico, Mipso) and Di Franco’s longtime touring band Terence Higgins on percussion and Todd Sickafoose on bass. With many of the performances captured in one or two takes, REVOLUTIONAY LOVE reveals DiFranco’s tremendous gift for seizing the moment of performance and transforming confusion into clarity, pain into perseverance.

Widely considered a feminist icon, Grammy winner Ani DiFranco is the mother of the DIY movement, being one of the first artists to create her own record label in 1990. While she has been known as the “Little Folksinger,” her music has embraced punk, funk, hip hop, jazz, soul, electronica and even more distant sounds. Her collaborators have included everyone from Utah Phillips to legendary R&B saxophonist Maceo Parker to Prince. She has shared stages with Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Seeger, Kris Kristofferson, Greg Brown, Billy Bragg, Michael Franti, Chuck D., and many more. Her last studio album Binary was released in June 2017 on Righteous Babe Records & Aveline Records. Her memoir NO WALLS AND THE RECURRING DREAM was released in May 2019, and Di Franco released a NO WALLS MIXTAPE alongside the book, offering a new take on songs related to the memoir.
