Poetry follows Dehd’s 2022 album, Blue Skies. They worked on the new album while on a road trip that took them to Taos, New Mexico, and the Puget Sound. “Eating, sleeping, breathing, living—our only purpose was to write,” singer and bassist Emily Kempf said of the experience in a press statement. Dehd finished the album at Chicago’s Palisade Studio with co-producer Ziyad Asrar.
