The Juliana Hatfield Three has reformed with the original  lineup of Todd Philips (drums), Dean Fisher (bass), and Juliana  Hatfield (guitar, vocals, keyboards, percussion) to release their  sophomore album Whatever, My Love.

Recorded at Nuthouse Recording in Hoboken, NJ and co-produced by  Hatfield and Tom Beaujour (Nada Surf, Guided By Voices, Minor Alps),  the twelve songs on Whatever, My Love are gorgeous and punk, sleazy  and sweet, unsentimental and funny.

Hatfield, humble as always,  acknowledges that, "We haven't totally reinvented the wheel or  anything" with this new album and that the recordings exhibit "stuff I  am sort of known for, I guess": a guitar-centric melodicism and lyrical examinations of emotional confusion. "But I am a lot more confident now than I was then with the first album. And I had more fun recording this one."

Whatever, My Love comes 21 years after the trio's Become What You Are  debuted on Atlantic Records. The 1993 album was an influential force  of uncompromising, original guitar pop/rock and secured a permanent place in alternative rock history with the radio hits "My Sister" and  "Spin The Bottle."

With their new album, The Juliana Hatfield Three has in a sense  responded to its former directive to "become what you are" by making  an album that is exactly what it wants to be, identifiable in its  acceptance--and celebration--of the eternally unknowable and unsolvable.
