Olivia Jean Shares New Single ‘Trouble’ and Announces New LP ‘Raving Ghost’ Due May 5, 2023

Olivia Jean shares a first look at her third solo album on the garage rock single.

Olivia Jean announced her third solo album, Raving Ghost, due May 5, 2023, via Third Man Records and shared the first single “Trouble.” The album will feature support from musicians such as My Morning Jacket keyboardist Bo Koster, Jellyfish co-founder Roger Joseph Manning Jr, and drummers Carla Azar (T-Bone Burnett, Nikki Lane) and Patrick Keeler (The Raconteurs, The Afghan Whigs).

On the single, the Detroit garage rock artist slings a fuzz-tinged guitar across a minimal design that breathes the retro styling of ’60s punk. “Trouble” is a steady sampling that is paired with an insatiable hook and warm bass lines, adding to the rapid swarm of confusion that leads one into the pot of trouble. Jean’s effervescent vocals blend the retro and pop undertones smoothly into a classic distortion that is best delivered by the artist.

Olivia Jean has also announced an extensive run of North American headline tour dates that include a coveted slot at Atlanta, GA’s Shaky Knees Music Festival, as well as performances in Nashville, New York City, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles and more.
