The new Joan As Police Woman album, The Deep Field begins with the words "I want you to fall in love with me," and continues to unfurl an unashamed lust for life. It's unquestionably her best, most significant album yet - in Joan's own words, "my most open, joyous record." A rocking, soulful journey, The Deep Field is Joan's most personal, and her most universal album to date.
Watch Joan Wasser talk about the recording of her new album:
The Deep Field - the title refers to a tiny and far distant part of space - follows the critical and commercial success of her previous albums, Real Life and To Survive and it confirms, if confirmation were needed, that Joan Wasser is a truly original talent; utterly captivating both on record and on stage, Joan returns to the UK in February for an eleven-date tour.
