Double 180 gm vinyl LP pressing. Traveling Alone follows Tift's critically lauded 2010 album See You on the Moon, which NPR Music called 'beautiful and aching' and People Magazine hailed as 'a most important step forward in a remarkable artistic journey that continues to search, penetrate, and surprise.' for Traveling Alone, Tift Merritt's Yep Roc Records label debut, Merritt put together her dream cast to make a record that was real, raw and live off the floor. Recorded in Brooklyn in 8 days, this album was produced by Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket), features a guest appearance by Andrew Bird and a band that includes Marc Ribot (Tom Waits), Eric Heywood (Pretenders, Son Volt), John Convertino (Calexico) and longtime collaborator Jay Brown. These songs were written and traveled by Tift Merritt.
