Musical artist Katie Crutchfield, otherwise known as Waxahatchee, has announced the release of her third album, Ivy Tripp, set for release on April 7 via her new label home Merge. The follow-up to the artist's 2013 LP Cerulean Salt, the new full-length features the shared track, "Air."

In a press release Crutchfield says the album's title is "really just a term I made up for directionless-ness, specifically of the 20-something, 30-something, 40-something of today, lacking regard for the complaisant life path of our parents and grandparents. I have thought of it like this: Cerulean Salt is a solid and Ivy Tripp is a gas.” 

Crutchfield continues, "My life has changed a lot in the last two years, and it's been hard for me to process my feelings other than by writing songs. I think a running theme [of Ivy Tripp] is steadying yourself on shaky ground and reminding yourself that you have control in situations that seem overwhelming, or just being cognizant in moments of deep confusion or sadness, and learning to really feel emotions and to grow from that."

In addition to the album, Crutchfield has announced a series of new tour dates. Check out the full list of upcoming shows below the stream of "Air."
