Today we feature Ani DiFranco as our latest BottleRock Napa Festival Featured Artist of the Day. For more than 20 years, Ani DiFranco has been capturing our attention as a singer, songwriter, activist and independent entrepreneur. She is currently gearing up for the release of her new album, BINARY on June 9th. Ani comments on the title,
“I always title a record from the song that seems to be at its core. An underlying theme in the songs, and in the feminism I want to engage society with, is the idea that autonomy is a fallacy—nothing exists except in relationship to something else. We are, in some senses individuals with individual liberties and unique powers, but that’s only a surface story.”
Binary includes the singles “Play God” and “Deferred Gratification,” with rhythms held down by bassist Todd Sickafoose and drummer Terence Higgins and contributions from violinist Jenny Scheinman, keyboard wizard Ivan Neville, the legendary Maceo Parker, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, and Gail Ann Dorsey. Mixed by Grammy-winning mixer Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Sheryl Crow).
