ANAÏS MITCHELL is a Vermont-based singer-songwriter, and the Tony and Grammy award-winning creator of the Broadway musical Hadestown for which she wrote the book, music and lyrics. She was named to TIME’s prestigious TIME100 list in 2020, and her first book, Working on a Song – The Lyrics of Hadestown was published by Penguin/Plume in the same year.
Dubbed by NPR as “one of the greatest songwriters of her generation”, Mitchell’s new self-titled album will be released on January 28th 2022. Produced by Josh Kaufman, it was made with close collaborators from Bon Iver, The National and her own band Bonny Light Horseman, and is Mitchell’s first collection of all-new material under her own name since 2012’s Young Man in America. Mitchell will debut the new songs during her headline tours in the U.S. and Europe in 2022, at which she’ll be accompanied by players from the album.
