Natalie Hemby will issue a new album, Pins & Needles, on October 8th via Fantasy Records, her debut on the label. Along with the LP announcement, the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter also shared Pins & Needles‘ title track co-written with Brothers Osborne.
While Hemby is one of the most successful behind-the-scenes songwriters in the industry as well as one-fourth of the supergroup The Highwomen, Pins & Needles sees the Natalie stepping into the spotlight. The record’s 11-tracks showcase her songsmith skills and celebrates her influences in the form of Tom Petty and Sheryl Crow.
“Pins and Needles is the record I never got the chance to make and I always wanted to,” Hemby said in a press release. “It’s the late 90’s sound, which is the sound of my young adult life.”
Natalie’s husband, Mike Wrucke (Miranda Lambert), produced and mixed Pins & Needles at Wruckestrike Studio with additional engineering from Mark Dobson and mastering from Howie Weinberg. Hemby co-wrote on the record with Miranda Lambert and her Highwomen bandmate Maren Morris among others and also teamed up with Aaron Raitiere and more for the previously released Pins & Needles opening track “Heroes.”
The journey to Pins & Needles‘ title track began years ago when Hemby began collaborating with Brothers Osborne. Natalie detailed the team-up in a statement:
Pins and Needles was the first song I ever wrote with Brothers Osborne. I have always loved this song, and I have always loved them. They almost put it on their record. Years after, I asked them if I could have it. They said yes, so I decided to record it and make it the title track. It’s one of my favorites.
