Fantasy Records is proud to present the new album from Rickie Lee Jones, Balm in Gilead, an extraordinary collection of emotionally powerful, texturally rich and endearing songs, many of which have been ‘incubating’ with Jones over the last several decades.

“This record is unique because most of it was written over the last 20 years,” she says. “All the other records, I’ve written in a year or two or three after finishing the previous one. This one has threads from many, many years. Some were just written recently, most were finished recently but started a long time ago. ‘Wild girl,’ for example, which ended up being about my daughter, was started before Flying Cowboys, and it was waiting all these years to finish. For me, the album feels close to a debut, because the only time you ever have to spend all these years writing a song is your first record, right?”
