If “Starlight” is any indication of Rachael Yamagata’s upcoming album, we are very, very excited. We love this song. Her raspy vocals tingle like nails going down your back, taking us back to the timeless character of a Fiona Apple song.

Chesapeake will be Rachael’s first studio album in three years and promises to delight with an “eclectic collection of songs projecting Yamagata’s newfound optimism and hopefulness.” Heck. Yes.

Look forward to Chesapeake dropping on October 11th.

After the jump, find a listing of Rachael’s extensive tour dates, beginning October 24th. Also find the “Even If I Don’t” video that dropped today.
