Garage rocker Olivia Jean has announced her third solo album, Raving Ghost, arriving via Third Man Records on Friday, May 5, 2023. Produced by Olivia Jean at Los Angeles’ Valentine Recording Studios and Third Man Recording Studio in her homebase of Nashville, Raving Ghost is heralded by first single “Trouble”.

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

Raving Ghost is an album featuring “mysterious characters in various states of danger”, from “cursed lovers,” to “doomed souls,” and “women deliriously haunted by unseen forces.”

Featuring backing 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), the album also includes an inventive cover of Enya’s classic “Orinoco Flow”. The new album builds on the retro-Surf sound of Olivia Jean’s past solo work by delving into a heavier sound.

Olivia Jean is also a co-founder of The Black Belles.
