ⓘ Somewhere Else (Lydia Loveless album)

Somewhere Else is the third studio album by American musician Lydia Loveless. It was released on February 18, 2014 by Bloodshot Records.

Somewhere Else was recorded with the same musicians that have extensively toured with Loveless. The album was recorded in two days and was produced by Loveless and engineer Joe Viers at Sonic Lounge in Columbus, Ohio.

                                     

1. Songwriting

Loveless scrapped an entire records worth of songs before beginning this record. The title track, "Somewhere Else," was written while at SXSW. "Really Wanna See You" was written at Loveless husbands grandmothers house. Loveless said she used layered guitars on the song to convey an electronica feel.

Hurts So Bad” was inspired by the tempestuous relationship between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. The song "Head" was co-written with Todd May, who plays guitar in Loveless band. Loveless said the song went through multiple versions and took a long time to write.

"Verlaine Shot Rimbaud" was featured on a "Special Valentines Day Edition" of NPRs Morning Edition Heavy Rotation series. It was also featured as a Rolling Stone "Daily Download." The song is about the 19th-century French poets Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud.

                                     

2. Album artwork

The album has a quote from Verlaine’s Aspiration inside the cover. The album artwork was created by a Columbus, Ohio-based company called Blackletter.

                                     

3. Reception

The album had an overwhelmingly good reception and entered Billboards Heatseekers chart new entries to Billboard charts, compiled by Nielsen SoundScan the first week of its release at position number 7.

Paste describes the record as "an album of blood and guts and emotions - anger and yearning and lust - that are so honest and immediate that they beg to be shared. The strength in Loveless’ vocals is how deftly she moves between tough and vulnerable, the emotions in both realms sincere and familiar." Mark Deming from AllMusic notes Loveless "has developed an uncanny ability to talk about matters of the heart and soul with a lyrical voice thats graceful, keenly observed, and brutally honest."
