'Born Yesterday' is a bookend to New York singer-songwriter, Margaret Glaspy’s lauded 2016 debut 'Emotions and Math' (ATO Records). “In releasing it, I feel set free to sink deep into my new inspirations while taking a break from the road and make something entirely new.” Glaspy continues, “These songs are the end of this chapter and mark a new beginning!”

'Emotions and Math' was featured on many Year-End lists when it was released in 2016, including The New York Times, NPR Music, Billboard and more. Glaspy toured the record intensely, playing countless shows throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. This season on the road birthed her new EP, 'Born Yesterday.' Margaret recalls, “I wrote these songs on the road, in my hotel, on the plane, and at soundcheck. They were the product of the little time that I had to myself - three songs about different sides of love: love gone wrong, love gone right, and love at a distance.” She continues, “'Born Yesterday' is a bookend on the adventure that was my last record, 'Emotions and Math.'”

Glaspy self-produced the new EP, which frames these love stories in catchy choruses, dark harmony, and her ever-evolving sense of electric guitar.
