About this album

Have One on Me is the third studio album by American singer-songwriter Joanna Newsom, released on February 23, 2010 via Drag City as the official follow up to the harpirst’s highly acclaimed second studio release, 2006’s Ys. It is a triple album produced by herself and mixed by long-time collaborators Jim O’Rourke and Noah Georgeson, with the accompanying arrangements by Ryan Francesconi.

Have One on Me is considered to be Newsom’s most accessible release and finds her exploring new sounds, such as the inclusion of instruments like tambura and kaval and the further development of other elements of her sound — the harpsichord, electric guitar and a progression in the orchestral accompaniment. She also flirts with genres such as jazz and blues in some tracks, while adding drums in others. Many of the songs are also reminiscent of her previous releases and show a natural progression. The lyrics have been described as more straightforward than those of Ys, though still cryptic. The album is also her first since The Milk-Eyed Mender to include tracks played on the piano instead of the harp. Because of health problems and natural reasons, by the time of the recording sessions Newsom’s voice had changed in comparison to previous works.

    not only best of 2010, but quite possibly the best of after 2000 to this day

    Am I the only one that sees the peacock tail as a giant pickle every time the album comes up?

    It's interesting to see the the listener distribution on these songs fairly even, indicating that people aren't cherrypicking their favorites, but rather given an equal consideration to all of the songs. I was expecting to see Good Intentions as the most played, and I realize it is mistagged as of 6/2014, but even if you merged it with its correct title it has less plays than '81. Wow. WE NEED A NEW ALBUM JOANNA!

    '81 and the irritating Good intentions are easily skippable especially coming after the superb first two tracks.

    hurts to think the creator of such a beautiful album married the creator of "Jizz in my pants"

    This is a pure peace of heaven. Straight from Joanna's mind, mouth and fingers. My gentle angel, my biggest muse.
