It's been six years since Breanna Barbara released her debut album, Mirage Dreams, and since then the psych-garage singer's career has taken some unusual turns. Most surprising: being recruited by Tricky to be his main touring vocalist in 2017 that has kept them collaborating since, including last year's Lonely Guest album. For her sophomore album, Nothin' But Time, Breanna hasn't undergone a radical trip-hop reinvention and works once again with producer/collaborator Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff), who makes the songs and her voice shine. You can listen to the whole thing below.
We asked Breanna to tell us a little more about the inspirations behind the album and she gave us a list of 10 songs, including ones by Gloria Ann Taylor, Bridget Fontaine, Alice Coltrane, and Grace Slick. Check out her list and commentary below.
