New York singer-songwriter Allegra Krieger has announced a new LP, I Keep My Feet On The Fragile Plane, due out on July 21 via Double Double Whammy, her new label home (pre-order). The first single from the album is "Nothing In This World Ever Stays Still," which she produced with Luke Temple and Jeremy Harris, and features pedal steel by Kevin Copeland of Lightning Bug. It plays like a '70s folk song with strummy acoustic guitar, meandering vocals, and fluttery electric riffs. Of the song, Allegra explains:
I wrote this song in a tumultuous time in my life out in LA for a brief stint. Everything felt connected and in constant motion, work came and work went, wildfires were raging, a relationship was failing. I was experiencing wildly meaningful phone calls with potential craigslist employers. The house I was staying in had a balcony which looked out over the expansive suburban valley. Beautiful sunsets. I was embracing the movement and the chaos, and the way everything fit together. Everything felt wrong, but the wrongness felt correct.

Allegra has tour dates coming up with Frances Chang, Greg Mendez and Shannen Moser, and Angel Olsen. She plays NYC on June 4 at Baby's All Right with Frances and June 11 at Purgatory with Greg and Shannen. All dates below.
