Singer Ingrid Michaelson and her husband, fellow musician Greg Laswell, have split.

“After careful consideration, and with mutual respect, we have decided to separate,” the couple tell PEOPLE exclusively in a joint statement.

“We ask for privacy as we navigate this time in our lives.”

Michaelson and Laswell – who wed in August 2011 – “have been living apart for months,” a source adds.

“Even though they’re going their own ways, they continue to support and respect each other.”

Last year Michaelson, 35, opened up about weathering tough times, which included health issues, her parents getting sick, and her dog dying.

She poured that emotion into her songwriting. “I let that bleed over into the recording process,” she told the Boston Globe last May.

Michaelson, who has recovered from serious throat and stomach problems that threatened her voice, recently released a video for her latest single, “Time Machine.”
