Jenny Owen Youngs is out with the music video to her new single ‘If I Didn’t Know’, from the Montclair, New Jersey singer songwriter’s second full length album ‘Transmitter Failure’ available now on Nettwerk. Watch via YouTube below.
Jenny Owen Youngs is back with her second album, ‘Transmitter Failure’, due May 26th on Nettwerk Records. The album’s lead, ‘Led to the Sea,’ is “the loudest song on the record,” says Youngs, “and it couldn’t be further away from the musical ideas of Batten.”
The disc, produced by Dan Romer, is a bold departure from her 2007 release ‘Batten The Hatches’. “I wanted to make something that would move people emotionally, but also move them physically,” Youngs explained. “I did not want to end up touring for another three years on a record that wouldn’t offer people the opportunity to move. So, Dan and I set out to make something that was, quite simply, more fun to play live. In the process, my writing took turns I didn’t expect.”

Rachael Yamagata checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@rachaelyamagata) on Wednesday (November 5), discussing the Hotel Café Tour and how things are going with her tourmates Meiko, Jenny Owen Youngs, Thao Nguyen, Emily Wells, and Samantha Crain. The singer songwriter tells readers:
Meiko is the sassiest and always makes me laugh – up for adventure (she weathered the street celebrations in Philly the night of the World Series with me), Tao the coolest – her guitar riffs are infectious as well as her stage presence and I wake up every morning singing her songs, Sam the liveliest with never ending energy and wit as well as being my twin as we’re saying (long hair and bangs with sisterly style), Jenny is the heart breaker and makes me want to cuddle her up after a show she can be so vulnerable when she sings (I would, but she don’t need it – as in she could beat my *ss) and Emily has just joined and is equally as sweet as the others and a total genius when it comes to all things electronic and violin.
