Montreal’s (/Tiohtià:ke’s) Le Ren today announced her debut album Leftovers will be released on October 15th, 2021, via Secretly Canadian. With production by Chris Cohen and contributions from Buck Meek and Tenci (among others), the LP’s organic yet meticulous folk soundscapes and deeply felt lyrics weave a rich musical tapestry that reveals new meanings within a lifetime of relationships, addressed to loved ones lost, found, and kept.
With the release of her Secretly Canadian EP Morning & Melancholia in 2020, Le Ren (née Lauren Spear) earned comparison to the deft musicianship and sparse, eloquent lyrics of John Prine and Neil Young. On Leftovers, she shows us the vivid depth of her sonic and thematic range, writing with a bold clarity that finds her a home among classic icons like Joni Mitchell, Vashti Bunyan, and Karen Dalton, as well as a new class of folk extraordinaires, such as Adrianne Lenker, Jessica Pratt, and Laura Marling.
