Sage Francis Reveals 'Li(f)e' LP Cover Art, Tours

As we reported Feb. 9, Sage Francis enlisted indie rockers to craft his upcoming Li(f)e album. He's joined by, among others, Chris Walla, of Death Cab for Cutie; Jim Becker and Tim Rutili, of Califone; former Grandaddy frontman Jason Lytle; DeVotchka; and members of Calexico and Sparklehorse. The more rock-oriented album also features Francis tackling some different topics, such as organized religion. It should certainly be interesting to hear how it all comes together, though he's no stranger to working with rock acts as Jolie Holland and Will Oldham have appeared on the MC's previous records.


The Providence, R.I. native is also embarking on a tour of most of North America, though he's left out his hometown. To be fair, he was just there last week with B. Dolan.

Unreal. I'm incredibly excited about this, although I can't even begin to imagine what it will be like; Sage Francis is one of the best lyricists around, and the likes of Chris Walla and Calexico will make this album a force to be reckoned with.

Definitely gonna try to catch the Vancouver show, although it is unfortunately not listed on the Biltmore website yet.
