Ani does New Orleans

Oh, what's that? Ani DiFranco is releasing a new album this summer?

Oh... and it's going to deal with Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath?

And it's going to be really, explicitly political? Huh. How surprising.

Rolling Stone has the scoop on this album. Having enjoyed DiFranco's last record, Knuckle Down-- mostly thanks to the involvment of producer Joe Henry-- I'm curious to hear what musical direction she takes here, though I'm afraid it sounds like the lyrics will appeal mostly to Ani's baser, preachier instincts. We'll see.

Shaken by the storm and its terrible aftermath, DiFranco has put together Reprieve, an unflinchingly political album, due in August, that expresses her frustration, sadness and sense of displacement. The way she tells it, after Katrina DiFranco could not wait to return to New Orleans, which she did as soon as possible. The serene, crisp sound of Reprieve's thirteen-song cycle sonically reflects her travels over the past year.
