I found a way to peace / It took me a long time sings Lauren Monroe, wading through mental struggles in life and love on “Void of Course,” off her upcoming album, Messages from Aphrodite, out Sept. 9.

Co-produced with Jim Scott, Messages from Aphrodite started piecing together while Monroe was mixing her 2021 release Under the Wolf Moon and writing “Big Love Lullaby” as an alternate version of the more produced Wolf Moon track “Big Love.”

“We loved the warm organic feel and that I could continue the message of healing and unity in a softer, more vulnerable way,” Monroe tells American Songwriter. “I thought it would be good to focus on a more organic sounding record that leaned into Americana more, and “Big Love Lullaby” set the tone for this new record.”
