Jenny Lewis reveals what it was like to work with Ryan Adams and Beck on her new album, in the new issue of Uncut, dated August 2014 and out now.

The singer and songwriter discusses the pair’s differing production styles on her new record, The Voyager, her first solo album since the dissolution of her band Rilo Kiley.

“Ryan Adams is like a whirling dervish,” laughs Lewis. “He’s how I imagine Phil Spector was in the studio – erratic, late, you don’t know what’s going on, but at the end of the day it sounds pretty fucking good!

“With Beck, it was so chilled. We walked on the beach in Malibu and talked about music, then we recorded a song. The songs kind of reflect the process if you’re listening for it.”

The new Uncut, dated August 2014, is out now.
