Janis Ian Releases New Studio Album "The Light At The End Of The Line"

Posted on January 11, 2022

Rude Girl Records is please to announce the release of the new studio album from Janis Ian, “The Light At The End Of The Line”.

At 70, Ian is embracing a new milestone: the art of the farewell. Set for release on January 21, 2022 on her own Rude Girl Records, “The Light at the End of the Line” is Ian’s latest and likely last studio album to bookend a her 1967 self-titled debut. As her first album of new material in 15 years, “The Light at the End of the Line” also sets the stage for what Ian imagines is her final tour.

“If The Light at the End” of the Line ends up being Ian’s swan song, it’s as graceful as exit as fans could want. "I love this album," she says. "There is an element of, 'This is the absolute best I can do over the span of 58 years as a writer. This is what I’ve learned. And I realized that this album has an arc, and I’ve never really done anything like that before.”
