The Weather Station’s (Tamara Lindeman) stunning newest album, How Is It That I Should Look At The Stars is intended to be heard as a companion piece to Ignorance (the 2021 smash album that garnered a JUNO nomination, Polaris Prize Shortlist, and extensive international acclaim including top spots in yearend lists from Uncut, The Guardian, Paste, SPIN and many more). Written at the same time as Ignorance, Stars’ songs connect and deal with many of the same themes: disconnection and conflict, love, climate change. It’s achingly intimate; full of breath, silence, and detail.
Like Ignorance, Stars has received international acclaim from Pitchfork, Stereogum, NPR, The Times, American Songwriter, Exclaim!, NME, and many more. Extensive radio play propelled Stars to the #2 spot on Earshot’s national folk chart, #3 on the Top 50 overall chart. Stars has surpassed 2 million streams across platforms, and The Weather Station’s catalogue has amassed over 30 million streams.
Recent tour accolades include international television performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live and PBS’s Austin City Limits, festival slots at Pitchfork Music Festival, Primavera, and Bonnaroo, and headline tours in Canada, US, Portugal, UK, Spain, Italy, Germany, Sweden, including shows at Radio City Music Hall and Massey Hall.
