The Mother Hips will release their 11th studio album, Glowing Lantern, through Blue Rose on December 3. The 11-track LP includes lead single “Looking At Long Days.”

Coming at the end of a year in which the Northern California-based band celebrates its 30th anniversary, Glowing Lantern was written and recorded as the COVID-19 pandemic raged. “The glowing lantern is a universal symbol for sanctuary,” stated The Mother Hips’ Tim Bluhm. “That’s what we wanted this album to be: a warm safe place to get in out of the dark cold night.”

Tim Bluhm co-produced the follow-up to 2018’s Chorus with bandmate Greg Loicacono. Glowing Lantern was recorded at Oakland’s 25th Street Recording and Forrest Power in Fairfax, California. “In some ways, making this record brought us right back to the early days when Tim and I used to live together,” added Greg Loiacono. “It brought us back to the roots of what this band was all about.”
