“Mushroom Punch” by Zella Day

Singer/songwriter, Zella Day, recently announced the details of her forthcoming sophomore album, Sunday In Heaven, the record, which was written and performed by Day, will be released on October 14 via Concord Records. Sunday In Heaven was produced by Jay Joyce (Cage The Elephant, Emmylou Harris), with additional production by John Velasquez and Alex Casnoff, and features Autolux’s Carla Azar and Cage The Elephant’s Daniel Tichneor. The album also includes the songs Day released in 2021 – Golden, Dance For Love, and Girls – as well as her recently released, pro-reproductive rights track, Radio Silence.

When she began working on the album, Day penned some 70 songs for Sunday In Heaven that were ultimately whittled to ten tracks steeped in Cali blue skies and golden hour light. Some were written on a tablecloth in Ojai (Almost Good), some scribbled at her kitchen table, others came in a car driving down to Chino, where she spent the summer of 2019 demoing the album with her friend, producer/engineer John Velasquez. Eventually, in the middle of quarantine, the pair jumped in a Jeep Wrangler, driving cross-country to record with producer Jay Joyce, at his Nashville studio, The Neon Church.
