Tracey Thorn - Oh, The Divorces! / Why Does the Wind? [MP3]

Tracey Thorn, que ao lado de Ben Watt forma o Everything But The Girl, grande sucesso nos anos 80s e 90s, durante este longo recesso da dupla, e também de um tempo para formar sua família, enveredou por uma bela carreira solo, já lançando seu segundo álbum, depois do tempo em que priorizou sua vida particular, Love and Its Opposite ratifica, mais uma vez, o talento de uma das mais belas vozes femininas do pop. Como se isso já não basta-se, Tracey ainda é generosa e já liberou duas das dez pérolas do álbum: Oh, The Divorces! e Why Does the Wind?.

MP3: Tracey Thorn - Why Does the Wind?

After pausing an 18-year career with partner Ben Watt in best-selling alt-pop duo Everything But The Girl (1982-2000), followed by a self-imposed hiatus to start a family, Tracey Thorn re-emerged in 2007 to a wave of critical acclaim with the glittering autobiographical folk-disco of Out of the Woods, her first solo album since 1982's indie classic A Distant Shore. Now she is back with another: the starkly beautiful Love and Its Opposite on Merge Records.

Partnering again with Berlin-based producer Ewan Pearson (who worked on much of Out of the Woods and more recently with Delphic), Tracey has created an album that is striking in its simplicity. Recorded in Berlin and London, and featuring guest contributions from Hot Chip's Al Doyle, The Invisible's Leo Taylor, Swedish singer-songwriter Jens Lekman, Nashville songwriter-drummer Cortney Tidwell, and Lost Valentinos' guitarist Jono Ma, Love and Its Opposite is steeped in a compassionate directness. The tight, often undecorated arrangements for guitar, piano, bass, and drums (and a smattering of strings and woodwinds) serve ten songs over a compact thirty-nine minutes that confront the full unvarnished weight of complex relationships in flux.

Love and Its Opposite is a humane and truthful collection from one of our finest singers and songwriters.
