In other news, Berkner will release her latest album this winter.

Let’s Go! is scheduled for release March 5. The album is her 14th full-length studio recording.

Berkner discussed the album during a recent interview.

“A pandemic is a strange and challenging time to make and release a new album,” said Berkner. “What’s really important? What’s going to change completely by tomorrow? I didn’t expect a song about handwashing to end up on this album, or a song about wearing a mask, and I waited to release the title track until after we were no longer under strict stay-at-home orders because … well, where were we going to GO? Somehow, through the remote help of my amazing producer, Dave Darlington, my great bandmates, and my incredible Two Tomatoes team, I was able to finish Let’s Go! from my home and put it out into the world. I love the shape of this album, and I hope families will, too.”

Berkner’s new album features songs, such as ‘When It’s Cold,’ ‘I’m On Vacation,’ and ‘Listen to the Sounds.’

Of the latter of that group, Berkner had the following to say:

“Quiet listening to what’s around me has always felt somewhat magical, but actually listening to my own heartbeat and breathing – my own life force – is something I only learned to truly love as an adult. I wrote this song hoping to open up the possibility for kids to feel that love for themselves.”
