Blood is Hatfield’s 19th solo album, and she recorded it at home in Massachusetts. “I think these songs are a reaction to how seriously and negatively a lot of people have been affected by the past four years. But it’s fun, musically. There’s a lot of playing around. I didn’t really have a plan when I started this project,” she said in a statement about the project.
In 2019, Hatfield released an album of originals titled Weird and the covers collection Juliana Hatfield Sings the Police.
