On her forthcoming album, “CHEATER”, Chicago-based singer-songwriter Ann Frances plumbs the depths of her sexual reality and her romantic relationships with men.

The 25-song, tour de force album is by turns joyful, defiant, funny, dark and poignant.

“CHEATER” is an indie rock tapestry that draws from punk, country, pop, bluegrass, African, folk and R&B.

On the title track, Ann reflects on her serial infidelity. The album also touches on themes of the exuberance of bucking sexual mores, the double-standard concerning woman who love sex (which Ann 75% satirizes and 25% internalizes), the frustration of being related to as a sex object, the legacy of sexual abuse (including how men have helped heal her) and infatuation.

On “CHEATER” Ann journeys from cynicism to vulnerability, ultimately realizing that despite sometimes being a literal pain in the ass, her lovers have been a profound, ethereal gift.
