Mirah Returns In March With New LP


Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn (also simply known as Mirah) will release her fourth solo album on March 10. (a)spera, the follow-up to 2004’s C’mon Miracle, will be issued by the K label. The 10-track LP finds the Portland, Ore., singer/songwriter working again with Phil Elverum (Microphones, Mount Eerie) on three songs; guests include Chris Funk (Decemberists), Tara Jane O’Neil and Lori Goldston. To read the feature we did on Mirah in 2002 (in it, she describes herself as “a total flamer cowboy/construction worker/biker, singing about cruising while dancing around in really tight pants”—our kind of gal), click here. Tour dates after the jump.
