A waltz that “captures the spirit of the moment.”
“We’re not repeating history, just the parts that sucked.”
“I’ve been teaching myself how to play piano, and here and there little bits come out,” Lorde writes in a newsletter update.
The song is the result of a chance meeting between Spektor and showrunner Matthew Weiner.
Nine raw tracks recorded to cassette at Prince’s Kiowa Trail home studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota.
Early solo version pulled from the forthcoming Piano & A Microphone 1983.
Coming in support of Spektor’s “A Very Special Solo Performance Tour”.
Listen to a raw recording of the 19th century spiritual “Mary Don’t You Weep”.
Queen-influenced track was inspired by a conversation with vocalist Ben Thornewill’s grandmother.
Produced by Jimmy Hogarth and featuring the ambient guitars of Brian Eno collaborator Leo Abrahams.
Every now and then two musical heads are better than one.
Intimate performances will take place in concert halls and theaters this fall.
