Juliette Lewis Set To Release New Record In September

Over the last half dozen or so years, Juliette Lewis (yes, the actress) has cemented herself as a bona fide rock chick. For those living under a rock and who may have missed out on some good music, Lewis fronted the brilliant Juliette And The Licks. Alas, The Licks are no more but Lewis is still rocking like there's no tomorrow. She's set to unleash her new album, Terra Incognita, on September 1. The upcoming album was produced by Mars Volta leader, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. Lewis wrote most of the 11 songs with long time friend and musician Chris Watson. Personally, I can't wait to get my hands on the new record. For a taste of what's to come, you can stream tracks from the album on Lewis' MySpace page.

And if that's not enough, she'll be on the road this summer with The Pretenders and Cat Power! Say wha?! Yeah, you read that correctly. Now that's a line-up! For those in the New York area, they'll be making a stop at Central Park SummerStage on August 10.
