Sarah Krueger Debuts New LANUE Project with ‘What I Love The Most’
the former solo artist’s new country vibes shine brightly
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Sarah Krueger, the Eau Claire native singer/songwriter who until very recently had maintained a popular following as a solo artist. But she’s ready to turn the tide in favor of a new project called LANUE, for which she dropped the first single on Jan. 21.
It’s a song called “What I Love The Most” – and it was recorded here in Eau Claire at Hive, the recording studio owned by Brian Joseph. It’s got a truly infectious, roll-down-the-windows type country twinge, and marks a pretty intriguing new vibe for Krueger.
LANUE is set to release a debut, self-titled, full-length album on March 2, and the album credits pack a serious punch. It was produced in collaboration with Steve Garrington (Low) and Sean Carey (S. Carey, Bon Iver) and it features JT Bates (Pieta Brown, Taylor Swift) and Ben Lester (Field Report, Sufjan Stevens).
The music video for “What I Love The Most” – directed by Zoe Prinds-Flash and edited by Lauren Josephine – finds Krueger among all kinds of pastoral beauty, standing in open waters, beachside. It’s really a warm, gorgeous tune with soaring pedal steel and Krueger’s sharp songwriting on full display. It's a good sign from the universe that Krueger is still making music, and it's a blessing that it's this strong of a first offering.
“What I Love The Most” is streaming on major platforms now. The self-titled LANUE album is set to release on March 2. To learn more and pre-order the record, go to www.lanuemusic.com.
