Nellie McKay’s fifth album, Home Sweet Mobile Home, will be released on Verve Records this September. Home Sweet Mobile Home is the singer/piano player’s first album of original material since 2007 . McKay paid tribute to Doris Day with her 2009 release Normal As Blueberry Pie – A Tribute to Doris Day. The new album, produced by McKay and Robin Pappas, was recorded in Los Angeles, New York, Jamaica and the Pocono Mountains and, even more than her previous albums, combines diverse musical moods and cultures.
“I have no idea how this album happened,” McKay said in a statement. “I guess I was looking for a sound to reflect our shrinking world and the bleed of culture crossing all kinds of borders.”
