The Tennessee singer begins this interview with a curious remark: "I really don't want to be in control anymore, of anything." Hear her play songs from her new album, The Order Of Time.
Valerie June releases her new album, The Order Of Time, Friday. It's the follow-up to her 2013 breakout album, Pushin' Against A Stone, which was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys. Originally from Mississippi, June was influenced by the church, family members and the music of Memphis, where she first began performing. She may have relocated since then, but her roots are strong.
