Due out Oct. 23 in North America via Dine Alone Records, Liberman updates you on Carlton’s state of mind since moving from New York to Nashville, marrying Deer Tick’s John McCauley and having a baby girl.  The album was named after an oil painting by Carlton’s grandfather, whose name was Liberman.

“The swirly colors of that painting remind me of the music and the music reminds me of those colors,” Carlton said.  “Then I looked up what Liberman means and it’s ‘honorable man’ and ‘my beloved’ – all these things that just felt right to me.  It’s a strong family name that, in a weird way, describes the music to me.”

Carlton has already unveiled a little of Liberman to the world.  Tracks “Take It Easy” and “Blue Pool” were included on her Blue Pool EP.  Two other tunes from the EP – “Operator (Live Living Room Session),” and “Nothing Where Something Used To Be (Live Living Room Session),” will be included on the deluxe version of Liberman, to be released the same day.  The deluxe version comes with a complete collection of Live Living Room Sessions.

Whether you opt for standard or deluxe, you can pre-order an autographed version of Liberman that can be bundled with tickets for the upcoming tour, via the artist’s website.  The album will also be available on vinyl by the end of November.

Carlton recently unveiled a lyric video to the track “Willows” via USA Today along with more information about the album.
