Just months after the release of her critically praised Traveling Alone last October, Tift Merritt today quietly released Night, a collaboration with pianist Simone Dinnerstein.

In further odd couple news: Tift today announced she’ll be playing a string of East Coast dates with none other than The Gaslight Anthem.
