Our Track by Track feature gives musicians the opportunity to explain how each track on their new album came together. Today, Chicago indie-soul musician Tasha breaks down her new album, Tell Me What You Miss the Most.
Clocking in at 10 songs, the follow-up to 2018’s Alone at Last was co-produced with Eric Littmann (Vagabon, Emily Yacina), and marks a strong jump in Tasha’s songwriting capabilities. Filled with homey instrumentals that blend elements of folk and R&B, Tell Me What You Miss the Most is a collection of tenderhearted songs that spotlight Tasha’s newly-honed strengths. It evokes the introspective solitude of crisp autumn mornings, the euphoria of a new crush, or the quiet contentment of arriving at inner peace.
“When I made Alone at Last, I had only been writing songs for two years. I hardly even knew what kind of songwriter I was,” Tasha explained in a press release. “But this record feels much stronger as far as a representation of my songwriter and musicianship. I did feel like I was piloting it in a way that I haven’t really felt before.”
Tasha added, “I was inspired by a distance I felt from myself. The writing was kind of born from this desire to get back to an intimacy, or honesty, with myself.”
