Nina Nastasia has announced her first new album in 12 years. On July 22, Nastasia will release Riderless Horse via Temporary Residence, with the vinyl version being released on November 4. It’s her first new music after an extended break that followed her former partner and collaborator Kennan Gudjonsson’s death by suicide. The first track she’s shared is “Just Stay in Bed.” Hear it below.

In a statement, Nastasia says, “Riderless Horse documents the grief, but it also marks moments of empowerment and a real happiness in discovering my own capability. Steve Albini produced this record with me, and Greg Norman assisted. The three of us are old friends, and we did a field recording in a guesthouse built like a lighthouse that two very dear friends of mine have in Esopus, NY. It was exactly the right environment to work on this record. We all had meals together, cried, laughed, and told stories. It was perfect. It made me realize how much I love writing, playing and recording music.

“Terrible things happen. These were some terrible things. So, what to do – learn something valuable, connect with people, move the fuck out of that apartment, remember the humor, find the humor, tell the truth, and make a record. I made a record.”
