Limited vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release, the 12th studio album from the singer/songwriter. Picking Up The Pieces is a bookend to Jewel's Pieces of You debut album which has sold more than 12 million copies. The album is released to coincide with Jewel's memoir, Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half The Story. Jewel originally hired Paul Worley to produce the album, but he backed out about a week before rehearsals insisting she produced it herself, suggesting she will thank him later for the idea. Jewel wanted to capture a live sound for the album. Portions of it were recorded during a set at The Standard in Nashville, while others were captured during a live performance in front of friends in Nashville's historic RCA Studio A. They were done in one take, with "no overdubs, no layering tracks, no auto-tune or tricks," according to Jewel. She describes the overall sound as "minimal, focusing on the singing, lyric, and emotion."
