On February 10th, 2017, Sub Pop will release Memories Are Now, the extraordinary Sub Pop debut from singer-songwriter Jesca Hoop.
Memories Are Now is an album of stunningly original songs–raw yet brimming with energy, forged from rich life experience and emotional depth. Beautifully delivered by an artist that has steadfastly honed her unique craft of musical storytelling. This album sees Jesca Hoop at her most realized and very best in her vocation. She wastes no time in making clear the confidence, confrontation, and craftsmanship of her bold and exquisite new album.
The provocative and emotive intrigue is on display in a poignant video for “The Lost Sky,” directed by Elia Petridis. Stereogum premiered the hauntingly anxious visual (see November 17th story).”

Memories Are Now will be released on CD / LP / DL and is available for preorder now right here, and LP preorders through megamart.subpop.com will receive the limited Loser Edition on exquisite robin’s egg blue-colored vinyl (while supplies last).
The album was recorded at NRG Studios, produced by Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes, Fiona Apple), engineered by Eric Caudieux, mixed by Greg Koller and mastered by Ian Sefchick at Capitol Mastering.
The release of Memories Are Now comes on the heels of Love Letter For Fire, Hoop’s acclaimed duets record with Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam.
