Maria Taylor: New album details, free song

Maria Taylor's upcoming album and third solo effort, Ladyluck, is due out on April 7th through Nettwerk Music. The record will feature product from Andy LeMaster, Mike Mogis, and Lukas Burton and collaborations with Michael Stipe, Nate Walcott of Bright Eyes, and Mckenzie Smith of Midlake. According to Taylor, the album sounds best if you "listen in a dark room, with a candle or two with headphones, maybe in the bath, but definitely horizontal." Nice to have some instructions!

Anyway, you can hear a preview by downloading the gorgeous first single, "Time Lapse Lifeline," below. She also has another track, "Orchids" streaming on her MySpace page, which is equally as wonderful. April suddenly seems like a long ways away.
