Jenny Lewis Scores First Ever Top 10 Debut With New Solo Album, 'The Voyager'

The Voyager - the new solo album from Jenny Lewis - has bowed at No. 9 on Billboard's Top 200 Album chart, selling nearly 31,000 copies in its first two weeks. This is the celebrated California singer-songwriter's first Top 10 album and highest chart debut ever, including the albums she released with her former band Rilo Kiley and with her side project Jenny and Johnny with Johnathan Rice.

In addition, The Voyager debuted at No. 1 on the Vinyl Albums chart and No. 2 on the Alternative Albums chart. The album is currently available for purchase on cassette via Burger Recordshere.

Over the weekend, Lewis performed her current single "Just One Of The Guys" on CBS Saturday Morning (watch here) and also played a sold-out show at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. She will appear on Conan on August 18th.

The Voyager is Lewis's most deeply personal album to date, documenting her struggle to cope following the death of her estranged father in 2010 and the subsequent break-up of Rilo Kiley. The Voyager's rootsy, golden glow comes courtesy of Lewis and the artists she chose to produce various tracks, including Ryan Adams (who, alongside Mike Viola, produced all but three of the tracks), Beck, and Lewis' longtime collaborator Johnathan Rice. The Voyager finds the always relatable songwriter at her sharp-witted best, singing about her recent experiences with honesty and incisiveness.
