The Haden Triplets are back after a nearly six year long hiatus from recorded music under this name, and have announced their latest studio album entitled The Family Songbook which is set to be released on Trrimeter on January 24 2020. This new album will feature their first recordings since the debut of “Slowly,” and “Single Girl Married Girl,” back in 2014.
The band have also confirmed a short list of four tour dates which are set to begin next year. A statement regarding the band’s tour dates indicates that the band will be expanding their tour, which currently hosts three stops in Southern California, and one stop in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The Haden Triplets consists of Petra, Rachel and Tanya Haden, who are all the daughters of legendary jazz bassist Charlie Haden. This latest album will feature recordings from recently unearthed songs by their grandfather, Carl E. Haden, who was the patriarch of the singing Haden Family. The sisters uncovered these songs via their uncle, who had Carl Haden’s original sheet music along with the songbook Favorites of the Haden Family.
One of these tracks, entitled “Wayfaring Stranger,” has also been released alongside a lyric video which shows various pictures of the Haden family, and their songbook. This stripped back and emotional track was originally a song sung by the triplet’s grandmother to their father, and is a somber track filled with a powerful vocal performance.
Rachel and Petra Haden are also involved with the Los Angeles based indie band that dog. which recently dropped their album Old earlier this year. That project recently ended a 22 year long hiatus between their album releases.
Petra Haden joined Woody Jackson during Red Bull Music Presents: The Music Of Red Dead Redemption 2. She has also worked in the past with experimental metal band Sunn O))) and The Decemberists.
