Jenny Lewis has been keeping herself busy over the past few years composing scores for Sundance worthy films and writing a song for GirlsBut she’s finally ready to get back to her day job.

In an interview with Rolling StoneLewis said her new solo album—a follow-up to 2008’s Acid Tongue—could be out this spring.

Lewis told the mag that her upcoming album was inspired by insomnia, but didn’t want to start giving details about the music until she was done mixing the record.

“I’m superstitious, until I start mixing, I feel like when I start it then I will be able to actually speak of it,” she explained, saying only that she was done recording and “it took a village.”

As for her new song, “Completely Not Me,” which premiered on the second episode of HBO’s Girls, she said it was a song she worked on with her friend, Rostam Batmangli from Vampire Weekend, someone she’d like to do more with in the future. “I originally wanted to do more songs with him but the Girls soundtrack was originally a great outlet for this one collaboration,” she said.

Lewis also said the track may or may not make it on her own album. “I don’t know. I’m not sure,” she said. “It depends on how the rest of the songs turn out, and see if it fits. It exists in its own right.”

Last week, Lewis appeared at Sundance to promote the film, One Song, which she, along with her boyfriend, Johnathan Rice, wrote songs for. The film is about a girl, played by Anne Hathaway, who is called home after her busker brother is hit by a car and ends up making friends with his favorite singer-songwriter.
