Waxahatchee and Jess Williamson have announced a new collaboration. Under the name Plains, they’re releasing their debut album, I Walked With You A Ways, via Anti- Records on October 14. The first single they’ve shared is titled “Problem With It.” Check it out below, along with the album’s tracklist, artwork and the duo’s upcoming tour dates.

Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield says in a statement, “I’m thrilled to announce this new project and album. I’ve felt a connection to Jess’s songwriting and a kinship with her since we met years ago. Getting to lean into the influence of the music we both grew up with while also making something that feels very current and fresh to me was a great experience and I’m so happy to finally share it.”

Williamson adds, “Making this record with Katie was a deeply expansive experience for me as a songwriter. I really trust her ear and sensibilities, and she encouraged me to explore aspects of my songwriting that in the past I’ve shied away from. Katie’s support was so important for me as we wrote this album. We gave ourselves permission to lean into the music that raised us and write the kind of classic timeless songs that we both grew up singing along to. For me that was The Chicks and Dolly Parton, and having a place to channel those influences was an absolute blast. My hope with Plains was to tap into something Universal. I love the album we made, and I’m so excited to play it live.”

Waxahatchee’s last album was 2020’s Saint Cloud, and Williamson’s was 2020’s Sorceress.
