GRAMMY-nominated sister duo Larkin Poe have shared “She’s A Self Made Man”, the lead single from the band’s newly announced forthcoming album, Self Made Man. The duo’s fifth studio album is due out May 1st via their own Tricki-Woo Records.
With its playfully pointed gender twist, “She’s A Self Made Man” both gives the LP its title and serves as an anthem for the multi-instrumentalist sister duo, comprised of the Atlanta-bred, Nashville-based Rebecca and Megan Lovell. The song comes complete with a thunderous rhythm section, piercingly overdriven guitar, and tight vocals.
Rebecca Lovell said of the song in a press release,
Life is all about balance. Sometimes it’s sweet, sometimes it’s sour. With ‘She’s A Self Made Man,’ I wanted to write a song about the up-and-down ride that Megan and I have been on for the past 10 years of building Larkin Poe. It’s hard to know who you are and it can take time to figure out what your purpose is, but I feel thankful that in recent years, my own feelings have started to click and make sense. Knowing and accepting yourself: that is empowerment.

Self Made Man, which will follow the band’s 2018 album, Venom & Faith, will see the duo pushing their music and message towards unexplored terrain. It is inspired by their world travels yet still powerfully rooted in the creative heritage of their beloved American South.
“This is, in a lot of ways, is the first lyrically uplifting record we’ve made,” Megan said. “People can go through terrible things. People can weather immeasurable sorrow and hard times, and yet we can still come out on the other side, pull ourselves together, and thrive. This record reflects some of the joy and positivity that we ourselves feel and appreciate.”
Fans can pre-order Larkin Poe’s forthcoming Self Made Man before it arrives on May 1st.
Additionally, Larkin Poe have a full spring and summer tour schedule lined up, assuming there are no future postponements due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Visit the band’s website for tickets and more information.
