A celebration of her acclaimed 30-year recording career, Mary Chapin Carpenter's landmark release, Sometimes Just The Sky features new versions of some of the iconic singer/songwriter's most beloved songs as well as one newly written number, which became the title cut. Produced by Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Paul McCartney, Ray LaMontagne), the 13-track collection was recorded entirely live at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios outside Bath, England. Joined by long-time collaborator Duke Levine on guitar and a handpicked band of Johns' favorite musicians, Carpenter re-imagined one song from each of her 12 studio albums along with "Sometimes Just The Sky." On the album title and newest song Carpenter says, "I read a beautiful interview with Patti Smith in which she said that you don't have to look far or wide, and it doesn't have to be complicated or expensive or madness in order to find things to soothe you in life, or to be happy about. Sometimes just the sky makes everything fall into perspective."
