The Weather Station shares gentle album of ballads ‘How is it That I Should Look at the Stars’

Toronto’s Tamara Lindeman has shared her new album as The Weather Station, How is it That I Should Look at the Stars, out now via Next Door Records.

The album serves as the companion piece to last year’s Ignorance. All of the songs from How is it That I Should Look at the Stars were written at the same time as Ignorance. Emotionally, the tracks from both albums deal with similar themes like disconnection, conflict, love, birds, and climate. The tunes from this album were far more gentle, though, so Lindeman decided to put them together as a new record.

“When I wrote Ignorance, it was a time of intense creativity, and I wrote more songs than I ever had in my life,” Lindeman explains of the album. “The songs destined to be on the album were clear from the beginning, but as I continued down my writing path, songs kept appearing that had no place on the album I envisioned. Songs that were simple, pure; almost naive. Songs that spoke to many of the same questions and realities as Ignorance, but in a more internal, thoughtful way. So I began to envision How is it That I Should Look at the Stars, a quiet, strange album of ballads. I imagined it not as a follow-up to Ignorance, but rather as a companion piece; the moon to its sun.”

The record was recorded live off the floor at Toronto’s Canterbury Music Studios from March 10th to 12th, 2020. How is it That I Should Look at the Stars features the previously released “Endless Time.”
