Multi-platinum-selling singer-songwriter Michelle Branch will return with her first full-length solo album in eight years with West Coast Time, which will be released by Reprise Records in September. The first single, “Loud Music,” already shipped to Hot AC Radio, will be available on iTunes June 14th.

Having already experienced success in a variety of formats over the course of a decade as a recording artist, Branch makes a return to her pop roots with “Loud Music.” The 27-year-old Arizona native launched her career in 2001 with her debut album The Spirit Room, which went multi-platinum and produced three substantial hit singles: “Everywhere,” “All You Wanted,” and “Goodbye to You.” Branch’s reputation as a young musical artist with grown-up talent was further solidified in 2002 when she teamed up with Santana to record “The Game of Love,” which became an international smash and won a Grammy Award for “Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.”
