After releasing their self-titled debut, Court Yard Hounds, to much critical acclaim, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire are at it again. Today the sisters announced they will release their highly anticipated follow up album Amelita on July 16th on Columbia Records.
Containing 11 new tracks, Robison and Maguire took a different approach with Amelita than their debut album in 2010. This album contains a new perspective, which is due in part to time passed since Robison’s divorce. “I’ve been freed of all of those time-heals-everything kind of things,” says Emily Robison. “Now, I’ve opened up to other ideas and ways of looking at life and the world.”
