Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard has released her debut solo album, Jaime.
The self-produced 11-track album was written entirely by Howards, with the exception of the “Tomorrow” (co-written with Paul Horton) and “13th Century Metal” (co-written with Nate Smith and Robert Glasper). The record also features the singles “He Loves Me” and “History Repeats.” Howard previously released a video for “Stay High” starring Terry Crews.
The title of the album is a tribute to Howard’s late sister, who died of cancer as a teenager. Her work on the record doubled as a “process of healing” for the singer, she previously wrote in a statement posted on Alabama Shakes’ Twitter account. “Every song, I confront something within me or beyond me. Things that are hard or impossible to change, words and music to describe what I’m not good at conveying to those I love,” she added.
