    Cedar? Check. Gold? Check. Tristan Prettyman? Check!

    Tristan Prettyman, ex-fiancee of Jason Mraz, will return from a four-year recording hiatus with her eagerly awaited fourth album Cedar + Gold, which drops Sept. 25.

    Instead of racing back to the studio after 2008's Hello, Prettyman took an extended break during which she traveled the globe, had vocal cord surgery, ended an engagement, and questioned whether she even wanted to be a musician at all. All of that is distilled into her album.

    Prettyman chronicles the highs and lows of her journey on Cedar + Gold, whose title refers to both the cedar walls and ceilings in the home where she recovered from her break-up and the gold she spun from her situation in the songs. "I started writing from a place that was so deep and honest, where I didn't hold anything back," she says. "It felt so good. I was like, 'This is what music is about — being able to release what is trapped inside of you.' Whenever anything caused me pain, I'd tell myself, 'Save it for the record.'"

    Love it, Tristan.
