PRIMUS – PRIMUS & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY

PRIMUS – PRIMUS &...

The definitive Primus line‐up – Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander ‐ is back together and set to release their first full‐length studio set in nearly 20 years, Primus & the Chocolate Factory. "The idea was to combine the Frog Brigade and Primus, and do this record,’ says Claypool. I think like a good portion of  the planet, we were all pretty put off by the remake of the 'Willy Wonka' movie ‐ the Tim Burton version. I really wanted to pay homage to a film [1971's 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,' starring Gene Wilder] that was very important to me as a kid and very influential to me musically. So that's what we did. And as opposed to just going in and recording the songs and playing them the way they are in the film, we twisted them up a bit…twisted them up a lot." ...

ANNIE LENNOX – NOSTALGIA

ANNIE LENNOX – NOSTALGIA

Nostalgia is the result of hours Lennox spent perusing vintage recordings and video performances of songs from the Great American Songbook, particularly those rooted in the blues. “I was just curious,” says the songwriter and singer of Summertime, I Put a Spell On You and Strange Fruit and other, less‐widely known songs such Mood Indigo and September in the Rain, “I thought, ‘I wonder what my voice would be like. Would these songs suit my voice?’ It was like a little challenge. I just sort of got to know them, became friends with them really and had a great deal of joy in the process." Finding Lennox at her most soulful, Nostalgia brings levels of depth and warmth to songs that primarily originated from the civilrights era. Singer songwriter, activist, and iconoclast, Annie Lennox is one of the most universally renowned artists in pop music history. Named one of The 100 Greatest ...

KIESZA – SOUND OF A...

While Kiesza's "decidedly hands‐in‐the‐air optimistic dance vibe" (FADER) is fresh to most, Kiesza has been at it since she was 17; dancing, song‐writing, playing various instruments and attending Berklee School of Music on full scholarship. Although, her path is not the norm, as she's gone from a code breaker in Royal Canadian Navy (who attempted to recruit the sharp‐shot as a sniper) to the face of FENDI's Colour Block sunglasses.

MADELEINE PEYROUX – KEEP ME IN YOUR HEART FOR A WHILE

MADELEINE PEYROUX – KEEP...

Keep Me in Your Heart for a While: The Best of Madeleine Peyroux will be the very first compilation release in the singer/songwriter’s 18‐year career, including favorites not only from her Rounder catalog, but also tracks from her Atlantic and Decca/Emarcy catalogs. Additionally, the album will include one previously unreleased song—title track and Warren Zevon cover, “Keep Me in Your Heart”—which appeared in 2011’s independent film Union Square. Peyroux, whose voice is often compared to that of Billie Holiday’s, was discovered while in her early twenties. Her 1996 debut Dreamland and husky voice enchanted audiences and critics alike, but it was 2004’s Careless Love —a wide‐ranging collection of covers from Elliott Smith to Leonard Cohen‐penned tracks— that proved to be a milestone release for the artist, fetching mainstream recognition and marking the start of a four‐album‐long collaboration with producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Tracy Chapman, Herbie Hancock).
