Lee’s new record will feature various different artists as collaborators, including Goldensuns, Stella Mozgawa, Dave Gahan, and Trentmoller. Also featured will be Lee’s own band, Warpaint. Jenny Lee states that she intended for this album to be “more lyrically based and really encompass me as an artist, not just a musician. I incorporated my paintings for the art, which I was also able to dive deeper with here in Utah and let myself go. To be free, instead of policing my every move.”
Heart Tax will follow after the release of JennyLee’s 2015 album, Right On. Lee’s band, Warpaint, has also recently began putting out new material, including their track “Lily,” featured on HBO’s Made For Love.
