Fruition has announced the upcoming release of the group’s first new album in four years, How To Make Mistakes, on August 23rd.

Self-produced by the band—comprised of Jay Cobb Anderson (vocals, guitar, harmonica), Kellen Asebroek (vocals, guitar, piano), Mimi Naja (vocals, guitar, piano, mandolin), Jeff Leonard (bass), and Tyler Thompson (drums)—the new album aims to capture the full scope of the quintet’s live sound, which features soaring three-part harmonies and rich rhythm and strings.

The album’s 13 tracks combine an impressive mix of influences and themes, from the playful “Hard to Make Money”, which was previously released as a single, and campfire anthem “Never Change” to the the sorrowful longing of “Take It Back” and the blues-inspired search for deeper meaning on “Can You Tell Me”.

“If you’re doing it right, you’re bound to make mistakes,” said vocalist and guitarist Jay Cobb Anderson. “Existence is a messy affair. Grace isn’t a swan, it’s a pigeon. The most beautiful intricate beadwork is often purposely flawed, to let the soul out. Perfection isn’t natural. The dearest memories are bent and dented. Priceless relics come chipped and cracked, and bruised fruit always tastes a little bit sweeter.”

Along with the album announcement, Fruition shared a taste of the project in the form of a new single, “Saturday Night”—an easy-going acoustic groove sweetened with the band’s signature vocal harmonies.
