GRACE POTTER’S NEW ALBUM DAYLIGHT OUT TODAY
POTTER SET TO PERFORM LOVE IS LOVE ON JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! ON NOVEMBER 6
“Thrilling in its musicality, with Potter showing off the powerful voice for which she’s become known…” – Rolling Stone
“One of the 24 biggest albums to hear this season.” – Entertainment Weekly
(on “Release”) “A devastatingly beautiful song, each line resonates.” – The Los Angeles Times
“An 11-song collection that is as boisterous and bellowing as it is desperate and resigned. At times, it is sexy, joyful, and lovesick. And in the case of the sparse and pleading “Release,” which Potter wrote acapella in the bathtub, it can only be described as holy.” – Esquire
“Love Is Love is the kind of song that'll stop you dead in your tracks.”- PASTE
“It’s a refreshing reminder of her vocal and compositional strengths… an encouraging return to form.” – American Songwriter
Toronto, ON – October 25, 2019 – Acclaimed songwriter and performer, Grace Potter, released her first new album in four years, Daylight, today via Fantasy Records. Produced by Eric Valentine, Daylight is a soul-inflected, deeply personal collection of songs that capture a particularly tumultuous period in her life - from the breakup of her band and a divorce - to more joyful events like a new marriage and the birth of her first child. Listen and/or purchase the album here.
Grace is set to perform the album’s rising first single, Love Is Love on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, Wednesday, November 6.
Hailed by Entertainment Weekly as one of the ‘24 Biggest Albums To Hear This Season’, Daylight has already garnered high praise from the Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, American Songwriter, PASTE, Billboard and Esquire among others.
Refinery29 recently premiered the video for the irresistible Every Heartbeat. The passionate song reflects her love for her husband and their infant son Sagan, who makes an adorable cameo in the video.
Grace wrote the album's 11 tracks with the help of renowned songwriter Mike Busbee (Pink, Maren Morris) who tragically passed away a few short weeks ago. Busbee co-wrote three of the album’s essential tracks, Everyday Love, Release and the powerful first single, Love Is Love.
Longtime collaborators, Benny Yurco and Matt Musty contribute guitar and drums respectively with Benmont Tench and Larry Goldings on keys as well as Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig from Lucius providing background vocals.
Grace will kick off her North American headlining tour on January 8, 2020 in Charleston, South Carolina. The tour will stop at theatres in major cities nationwide including Atlanta, GA; Philadelphia, PA; Boston, MA; New York, NY; and Los Angeles, CA. Full routing below.

An electrifying performer, Grace has been described by SPIN as "one of the greatest living voices in rock today." Over the course of her career, the Burlington, Vermont native has commanded stages around the world including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Rock in Rio and her own thriving music festival, Burlington's Grand Point North, which just celebrated its ninth year.
Earlier this week, Live From Here with Chris Thile featured an interview and performance with Grace recorded at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park during the 2019 Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. To watch, click here.
