Jenny Lewis's new album, The Voyager, comes out today and we are lucky to have her as our guest playing live with her band.

From child actor to co-head of Rilo Kiley and thru some spectacular solo albums (Rabbit Fur Coat and Acid Tongue) plus working with Ben Gibbard in The Postal Service, we already know Jenny is a trooper. This weekend her story was chronicled in a profile in The New York Times Magazine.

As we will hear today, this album took her a while, as insomnia and the death of her father threw her for a loop. She started working with Beck on the song "Just One Of The Guys," but it was Ryan Adams who brought forth the performances on The Voyager as producer.
