THE WILD – the moving, emotionally charged new album from Kris Delmhorst –
comes to terms with what Greg Brown memorably called “All this terror and
grace.” The stakes rise as we go along. Our babies arrive and disappear into
children, friends die or get weird, our parents distill. We lose the path – to our
story, our partner, to the muse – and must reckon the way back.
And The Wild, where has it gone?

The result, while a deeply personal album, looks upon universal human situations
with unflinching compassion. “Did you shake like a mountain?” Delmhorst asks,
in ‘Temporary Existence,’ “Did you lie like a lamb? Did you cry like a fountain?
Fail like a man? If you tell me your story, I’ll tell you my story too.”

THE WILD is the first studio collaboration between KD and husband Jeffrey Foucault (“Contemporary and timeless” – NY Times), who co-produced and contributed guitars and vocals. Featuring a band drawn from players they share long history with as bandmates and friends, the album merges Delmhorst’s sophisticated melodies and hauntingly open voice with Foucault’s lean aesthetic to deliver a darkly hopeful, fiercely wise new collection of songs.

Pre-order THE WILD here, and get your copy before the September 22 release. The Access Pass comes with every purchase level and includes the pre-release digital download of the album, as well as weekly updates from KD featuring exclusive access to backstory, track premieres, and exclusive video content. You can also buy the album on CD or Vinyl, have it signed if you like, or have the lyric of your favorite KD song written out by hand. The money raised here will fund the album post-production costs and help put the band on the road.
