Becca Stevens Band Begin East Coast Tour This Week, Release Video For Dazzling Frank Ocean Cover

NY Times Streaming New Album Perfect Animal Ahead Of April 7 Release, NYC Album Release Show April 23 At Joe’s Pub

Watch The Video For “Thinkin Bout You” Here

MARCH 11, 2015 – Ahead of the release of their new album Perfect Animal April 7th on Universal Music Classics, the Becca Stevens Band will head out on an East Coast tour to preview songs from the new album. “At times resembling a more folk-tinged St. Vincent, Stevens offers richly twisted originals alongside covers of Frank Ocean, Usher and Steve Winwood” (LA Times) on Perfect Animal, which filters Stevens’ myriad influences (indie rock, R&B, jazz, West African music, folk) into a singular, electrifying sound. The New York Times will premiere the full album via their Press Play series a week ahead of release. The band has also created a sparkling video for their gorgeous take on Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You.”

Watch an EPK on the making of Perfect Animal here.

Perfect Animal is produced by Scott Solter (St. Vincent, Mountain Goats, Spoon) and mixed by Matt Pence (Midlake, Yuck, Here We Go Magic). Solter helped the band capture the energy they bring to live shows as well as a musical weight and intensity that had always bubbled under the surface
