Julian Lage has shared the details of his new album called Speak to Me.

Set to be released March 1, the guitarist’s latest recording is his fourth for Blue Note Records and his third in as many years; it follows 2023’s The Layers, which was a companion piece to 2022’s View With a Room.

Produced by Joe Henry, Speak to Me is an intimate recording that offers “a series of dispatches from his ongoing search for narrative beyond words,” according to a media release by Blue Note. The 13-track set of original music is inspired by a wide range of American music including crossing gospel, blues, folk and jazz.
