Juliana Hatfield's New Record Pussycat has been Released

1:19 AM

Boston-based singer-songwriter Juliana Hatfield released her brand-new record titled "Pussycat" (American Laundromat Records). 

Currently on tour in support of the new record, Hatfield produced and played every instrument other than drums-bass, keyboards, guitars, vocals. 

From start to finish-recording through mixing-the whole thing took a total of just twelve and a half days to complete.
"I wasn't planning on making a record," Juliana Hatfield said. 
In fact, she thought her songwriting career was on hiatus, and that she had nothing left to say in song form; that she had finally said it all after two decades as a recording artist. But then the presidential election happened. 
"All of these songs just started pouring out of me. And I felt an urgency to record them, to get them down, and get them out there," Hatfield said.
"It was a blur. It was cathartic," Hatfield said. "I almost don't even understand what happened in there, or how it came together so smoothly, so quickly. I was there, directing it all, managing it, getting it all done, but I was being swept along by some force that was driving and controlling me. The songs had a will, they forced themselves on me, or out of me, and I did what they told me to do. Even my hands-it felt like they were not my hands. I played bass differently-- looser, more confident, better."
Pussycat comes on the heels of last year's Hatfield collaboration with Paul Westerberg, the I Don't Cares' Wild Stab album, and before that, 2015's Juliana Hatfield Three ("My Sister", "Spin The Bottle") reunion/reformation album, Whatever, My Love (American Laundromat Records).
"I've always been prolific and productive and I have a good solid work ethic but this one happened so fast, I didn't have time to think or plan," Hatfield said. "I just went with it, rode the wave. And now it is out of my hands. It feels a little scary."
