Considered to be one of her strongest records, Hejira was written by Joni Mitchell while she was traveling cross-country by herself from Maine to Los Angeles, California. The songs contain prominent imagery including highways, small towns, snow, and restlessness. About the album, Mitchell said: "the whole 'Hejira' album was really inspired… I wrote the album while traveling cross-country by myself and there is this restless feeling throughout it… The sweet loneliness of solitary travel." The album's name is taken from the arabic word hijra, which means "journey". Released in 1976, the album reached #13 on the Billboard 200 pop albums chart and was certified Gold.
