Lake Street Dive's Free Yourself Up, due May 4, is, in many ways, the band's most intimate and collaborative record. The band worked as a tightly knit unit to craft its ten songs and self-produced the album in Nashville with engineer Dan Knobler. "Free Yourself Up is about empowering yourself, emboldening yourself," says the band, "no matter what's going wrong." Pre-order to get an exclusive print signed by the band and download the album track "Good Kisser" now.
