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.

    '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.

    This album has no weak or forgettable tracks, it's pretty much perfection.

    @Goomba4001, isn't it funny how we all enjoy music differently? I absolutely LOVE HOOM but those tracks don't really resonate with me. Some songs were really slow growers, like In California (for me). optimistic_tour said it well. They're all good, while some are great.

    About a week after I posted that below, I got No Prevenance stuck in my head incessantly. The universe punishes anyone who tries to pick best/worst songs from this album. (And, mic180, what? What?!)

    hmm, good question. For me it's King Fisher and You, Me, Bess and Have One On Me.

    if anything is skippable it's only relative to the outstanding quality of the whole batch

    Which wins the award for most skippable track? No Provenance, or Occident? *dodges rocks*

    Why are all of her songs so stunningly gorgeous? Not fair, I can't listen to anything else because I have all her songs on repeat and I just can't get enough of her music.
