Last week singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis released a new single as part of the Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do… soundtrack. Soundtrack contributor is a role Lewis has cozied up to recently with a slew of work for films of late. In fact, with the Girls single “Completely Not Me” (co-written by Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmangli), that ever-present question of when Lewis will follow up 2008’s Acid Tongue grows a bit louder.

We know the album is gestating. Johnathan Rice revealed as much to LA Music Blog this fall when he noted that he and his frequent partner in crime both “[…] have kind of a solo vibe at the moment.”

Lewis, who is currently at Sundance with Rice supporting their soundtrack for the film Song One, divulged to Rolling Stone that her third solo album is eyeing a Spring 2014 release. She’s finished recording and will be working on mixing the album, but offers little more than that. Ever the modest artist, Lewis noted, “I’m mixing next week and this is all I’ll say, until it’s mixed, I don’t really want to talk about it, but it took a village.”

Whether it took a village, a town, or an entire country, Jenny Lewis, we still await the album with bated breath. In the meantime, you can take a listen to ”Completely Not Me” below. The full Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do… soundtrack is available February 11th via Atlantic Records. Full tracklisting below as well.
