Young In All The Wrong Ways, Due July 1 on New West Records

Sara Watkins, (Nickel Creek) has released a video for ‘Move Me’ from her upcoming album Young In All The Wrong Ways. 

When speaking to NPR Music about the song ‘Move Me’ Watkins notes, “this song came out of feelings of frustration with some relationships that had gotten stale or outdated.”

Sara Watkins solo music is threaded with a similar fabric that she had with Watkins Family Hour and Nickel Creek. The band for Young In All The Wrong Ways is comprised of guitarist Chris Eldridge, bass player Paul Kowert, Jon Brion, Jay Bellerose, Sarah Jarosz, Aoife O’Donovan and Jim James of My Morning Jacket provides vocals on ‘One Last Time.’

“I’ve known these guys for a long time, so there’s a personal trust as well as a musical trust,” Watkins says. 

The band’s management noted that Young In All The Wrong Ways was produced by Gabe Witcher at United Recording (formerly Ocean Way) in Hollywood last year.

“It’s been a process of letting go and leaving behind patterns and relationships and in some cases how I’ve considered myself. What these songs are documenting is the turmoil you feel when you know something has to change and you’re grappling with what that means. It means you’re losing something and moving forward into the unknown.”

Watch the video for ‘Move Me’ and scan over her live tour dates. This summer Watkins will be traveling to Telluride, Bonnaroo, New York and all over the US with new material to share with live audiences.
