"I've got myself a new mantra," Ani shares on Red Letter Year. "It says 'Don't forget to have a good time.'" This attitude clearly influenced the dozen tunes on the album, which celebrate existence, profess love and tackle thorny political issues with an infectious sense of glee. It's one of Ani's most joyous records to date!
Featuring her live band and lots of special guests, Red Letter Year was sculpted over the course of two years, a period in which Ani continued to hone her songwriting, performing and recording skills, all the while balancing her new role as a mom. The end result is an album of focused, layered, panoramic music.
Oh, yeah, and it GLOWS IN THE DARK!
