Madeleine Peyroux – Anthem
Available on backorder
2 × Vinyl, LP, Album. Double 180gm vinyl LP pressing. 2018 album from the jazz vocalist.
Anthem finds the singer-songwriter collaborating with writers/musicians Patrick Warren (Bonnie Raitt, JD Souther, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Lana Del Rey, The Red Hot Chili Peppers), plus Brian MacLeod (Sara Bareilles, Leonard Cohen, Tina Turner, Ziggy Marley) and David Baerwald (Joni Mitchell, David and David, Sheryl Crow), who are also the basic rhythm section players on the album. Together, they cast a sober, poetic, and at times philosophical eye on the current state of the world.
Produced and co-written by Larry Klein, the album came to life during the pivotal 2016 US elections, with the writers absorbing a constant stream of news over many months. Anthem is an album born out of the team being together in one room, musing over world events and letting personal experiences spark ideas.
