Picking Up The Pieces is the twelfth studio album by American singer-songwriter Jewel, released in September 2015 by Sugar Hill Records.

Picking Up The Pieces contains a not-so-subtle allusion to the title of Jewel's 1995 debut Pieces Of You. Twenty years later, she is acknowledging how she's strayed from the folky fragility of her beginnings and is now ready to reconnect with her roots, going so far as to sign with folk label Sugar Hill for Picking Up The Pieces .

Over the course of this hour-long effort, Jewel does find some space for guests - Rodney Crowell shows up on "It Doesn't Hurt Right Now", Dolly Parton on "My Father's Daughter" - and there are gentle accoutrements like moaning sitars, full rhythm sections, and gliding pianos, all arrangements that are felt more than heard. Despite these gentle touches, Picking Up The Pieces feels unadorned but not necessarily simple.

Often, it's possible to feel the weight of the two decades dividing Pieces Of You and Picking Up The Pieces, usually in the loss of Jewel's naiveté. On her debut, she felt youthful and instinctive, but on this she relies on craft, sculpting the songs so they recall a younger version of her. Melodically she's a stronger writer now than she was then and a better record maker, too. All those naïve rough edges were ingratiating on Pieces Of You, but they'd seem affected on a mature Jewel, so her decision to return to the form but not the sensibility of her earlier music is what makes Picking Up The Pieces a successful neo-comeback.

Check out the tracks: “My Father’s Daughter”; "Pretty Faced Fool"; "Love Used To Be"; "Mercy"; and “A Boy Needs A Bike”. 

This double album 2LP record set is on black vinyl housed in a single pocket sleeve with printed lyric poster and digital download code, pressed in the US.
