It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything from Jenny Lewis, but all of sudden a whole range of Lewis-related projects pop up. First of all, she’s slated to score and act as music supervisor for the indie film Very Good Girls, starring Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen as friends with a mutual love interest. Naomi Foner directs, and according to IMDB it’s set to appear in 2013.
Lewis also talked to OC Weekly about a planned follow-up to her 2008 solo album Acid Tongue. There’s no firm details yet, but Lewis has confirmed she’s recording “a handful” of songs. When asked what’s been inspiring her new work, Lewis stated, “I’ve gotten my heart broken, and fallen in love, and moved out my shitty rent-controlled apartment, and lost my father, and tried to rebuild my relationship with my mother. All of these things have definitely popped up in my songs and I want to write something that’s real that people can feel.”
She also confirmed that she’s been working on a B-sides compilation for her former band Rilo Kiley that will contain old songs and old photographs, according to 944. Below, watch a video of Lewis performing a new song possibly called “Head Under Water,” recorded live at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur back in June. [Consequenc of Sound]
