Earlier this year Juliana Hatfield let it be known that she had regrouped her mid-90s trio, The Juliana Hatfield Three, the group that made the excellent 1993 album Become What You Are.
The song is off a new crowdfunded album, Whatever, My Love, and it will be released early next year.
Here’s a note from Hatfield that she posted on the Pledgemusic page for the crowdfunding of the album:
Todd, Dean, and I have just begun recording with the lovely and talented Tom Beaujour (who worked with me and Matthew [Caws] on the Minor Alps album) at the Nuthouse in Hoboken, New Jersey, and so far it is going great. Some of you may have previously heard some version of some of the songs we are working on. For example, one of the songs we are exploring is “If I Could”. We have always loved this song but there have only ever been demos of it; it has never been properly finished or produced. There are multiple attempted versions of it but the nut has never been quite cracked, and this has always sort of haunted me. Now I feel like I finally have the chance to get it right with Todd and Dean.
We are also exploring electricized band versions of a couple of the punchier acoustic home-recorded songs from my last album, “Wild Animals”. And there will be some other surprises.
Stay tuned for updates – we will keep in touch during the recording and mixing and in-between processes with photos, videos, and music.
Thank you so very much for being here with us to help us and encourage us and support us.
