Keith here with my DJ pick of the week from Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard. “Stay High” is the second track released from her forthcoming solo record Jaime, out Sept. 30 via ATO Records.

“It’s my first time making decisions on my own, being the captain of the ship,” Howard explains her solo venture in a press release. “It brings up existential questions — why am I here, why do I do this? People think that touring in a band is super-fun, and it can be, but nothing about it is normal. You miss out on a lot of stuff, so I need to make sure I’m doing it for the right reasons.”
