Martha Wainwright is releasing her new album, Come Home to Mama
, today, Oct 16. The album was years in the making and spans some of the most emotionally charged events in the singer/songwriter’s life, including the death of her mother, Kate McGarrigle, and the birth of her first child.
“It was really intense and it was really difficult times,” Wainwright says. “So, I started writing all these songs based on mortality.”
Wainwright chose Yuka Honda, co-founder of Cibo Matto, to produce the album.
