Jeremy Ivey has announced a forthcoming LP, titled Invisible Pictures, due out March 11 via ANTI- Records. He has also released the first track off the album, “Orphan Child,” and the accompanying music video.

Invisible Pictures draws on themes from the musicians’ journey, using music as a mode of storytelling, allowing Ivey to reflect on intimate details from his past—taking pain and the mundane realities of human suffering and creating art. 

The musician reflects on his early childhood and adoption, considering his past while also reflecting on the current state of the world and its impact on the artists’ life, motifs that hold true on the title track, “Orphan Child.”

“I’ve always felt like l was born at the wrong place at the wrong time in the wrong body to the wrong people,” Ivey said of the lyrical arrangement and music video theme for “Orphan Child.” “Maybe it’s because I was adopted, but I think it’s more than that. As soon as you’re born you are automatically judged by someone because of your sex or race or the culture you are raised in. Hated for something that you had no part in choosing. That’s what this song is about.”

In addition to the forthcoming LP, Jeremy Ivey will head out on tour with Mike Campbell and The Dirty Knobs beginning March 9. See the tour dates below.
