    Here’s news: Juliette Lewis kicks some major ass. But you probably already knew that.

    So, let’s move on to some other news, like the fact that Juliette Lewis is super popular. After all, she’s hanging out with everyone from The Mars Volta’s Omar Rodríguez-López to The Pretenders and Cat Power these days. Details, you ask?

    Well, the hang out time with Rodríguez-López began back in 2007 at the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan. As the story, or press release goes, the two “soon bonded over their love of Fellini movies and the relationship between drama, visual images and songwriting,” so much so in fact, that late last year, the two got together and recorded a Lewis’ latest studio effort. Entitled Terra Incognita and due for release on September 1st via The End Records, the 10-track effort is described as featuring a “emotionally guttural and ultimately melodic and unpredictable, new sound.” In other words, as Lewis notes, “This album is so sonically different than anything I’ve done before and captures many flavors of my emotional life and voice.”

    The other hang out time, the one with The Pretenders and Cat Power, hasn’t gotten away quite yet, but will in the coming months. Lewis will look to support the release of Terra Incognita by teaming up with The Pretenders and Cat Power for a summer tour of epic extravaganzas. A few dates have trickled out so far, but most are still forthcoming.
