Bethany Cosentino Announces Debut Solo Album “Natural Disaster”

By: Staff –

Bethany Cosentino has announced her debut solo album, entitled Natural Disaster, and it’s set for release on July 28 via Concord Records.

Produced by Butch Walker, Natural Disaster, which was written in Nashville and Los Angeles, sees Cosentino departing from the understated indie-pop she’s long delivered as frontwoman for Best Coast. The album matches her signature lyrical reflections that made her one of the defining voices of the mid-Aughts with a radiant form of pop-rock inspired by many of her most essential influences (powerhouse singer/songwriter/guitarists like Bonnie Raitt and Sheryl Crow, ’90s country icons, the female-led acts on the lineup to Lilith Fair). Intensely intimate yet rooted in universal truth, Natural Disaster ultimately reveals Cosentino as an artist with a rare capacity to transform the way we navigate the fast-changing world around us.

The first single from Natural Disaster is an incredible song called “It’s Fine”, which sets the tone for Cosentino’s new material. It is the song Cosentino was born to write and sing, putting her incredible voice – rich and full – front and centre to detail making sense of a world where there is none. A video for the song, directed by frequent collaborator, Janell Shirtcliff, is out today as well. Watch the video for “It’s Fine” below. Pre-save Natural Disaster here.

In tandem with announcing her solo debut, Bethany Cosentino is also confirming that Best Coast will go on indefinite hiatus. About the decision Cosentino says, “My identity as a human being, and as an artist, has been so wrapped up in Best Coast for over a decade. The decision to pause the project indefinitely, and explore a new side of myself, was a very difficult one to make – but it felt necessary for me. Life is too short to not give yourself what you feel you need and want. I am excited about being just Bethany Cosentino for a while and figuring out who I am outside of the ‘Bethany from Best Coast’ box I’ve lived in for such a long time.”
