Her new record I Never Learn is out May 6. Here’s what she says about it:

As we noted last week, there’s a whole hullabaloo going on in regards to Fleetwood Mac. No, the band’s not back together, but there are a great number of new and established talents who’ve joined forces for tribute compilation and we’re beginning to hear the first outputs. Best Coast’s live rendition of Rhiannon was, um, heard earlier this week, but we’re more amped on a few n00bs that are streaming today. MGMT goes for a 9-minute weirdo psych vocoder version of Future Games, Swedish chanteuse Lykke Li tugs at the heartstrings on Silver Springs and Antony provides a simply straight-forward and crisp take on Landslide.
