Following the release of Damned Devotion, Joan As Police Woman will take her captivating live show on the road and will be performing the prestigious show at Town Hall, as part of a national tour.
Already acknowledged as a thrilling live performer and starkly honest lyricist, new album Damned Devotion finds Joan Wasser at her rawest. Famously a collaborator and muse to artists as diverse as Anohni, Rufus Wainwright, Lou Reed and Beck, since the release of her last album Joan has worked alongside fashion designers Viktor & Rolf as well as a growing list of musicians including Sufjan Stevens, Lau, RZA and most recently Daniel Johnston.
“I say yes to almost everything,” she admits. “I just want to be making music all the time. I can comfortably say that music has saved my life and continues to save my life. I am a devotee. It’s not something I can even choose or not choose it’s just what is.” … Damned Devotion
The first video to accompany the album is for Warning Bell (Track of the Day on Lauren Laverne’s 6Music show), a tender, bewitching song of regret Joan wrote about “being a romantic and the naiveté that goes along with it.”
