It’s been six years since Jenny Lewis released a proper solo album. While the record isn’t set to drop until July 29, thanks to NPR, you can listen to it a whole week early.

Lewis’ latest album, produced in part by Ryan Adams, deals with loss, namely the passing of her estranged father and her band Rilo Kiley, which broke up after nearly 15 years together. These two caused her to start suffering from terrible insomnia that at one point kept her awake for five straight nights.

But the album isn’t sad, instead, it takes a look at all the trappings of adulthood, specifically being a lady without a baby.

In’s interview with Lewis, she talked about the origin of that line on the Beck-produced track, “Just One of The Guys,” where the 38-year-old songstress shocks and awes with the line, “When I look at myself, all I can see/ I’m just another lady without a baby.”
