“I finished the song that became the title to the album and it’s when I finished that song, ‘The Things That We Are Made Of,’ I felt some feeling like I think I’m done,” she said. Carpenter takes the listener on a journey, drawing upon her own experiences as a middle age woman to speak to broader universal themes of identity, memory, timing and change.

“I think it’s important to ask questions…sometimes it’s the questions that are more important than knowing the answers,” she said. Carpenter sings of the periods following the kind of late-in-life unmoorings — in her case, a near-death experience and a divorce — that disrupt a settled perspective. She reckons with doubt and recapitulates small memories of great importance;

“Working with Dave felt great from the first day of our sessions,” says Mary Chapin. “He is always willing to try something new, believes that ‘yes’ is the only answer, and surrounds himself with wonderfully talented and generous musicians. By the end of the project, I felt as if I was a part of a new family.”
