Nashville-based artist Adia Victoria treated us with the stunning, bluesy single “Dope Queen Blues” last month. The blues queen has just announced her second LP titled Silences, which will be out on February 22 via Canvasback Music. Produced by Aaron Dessner (The National), the record explores the different forms of silence people engage in when it comes to facing sexism, addiction, mental illness, and everyday struggles.
