Nonesuch to Release Natalie Merchant’s New Self-Titled Album May 6, Her First Collection of Entirely Original Songs in 13 Years
Nonesuch Records will release Natalie Merchant’s new self-titled album on May 6, 2014. The recording is the multi-platinum singer’s sixth solo collection, and her first of entirely original songs in 13 years; she describes the new release as informed "by experience and keen observation," dealing with issues of "love gained and lost, regret, denial, surrender, greed, destructiveness, defeat, and occasional triumph." Natalie Merchant is available for pre-order in the Nonesuch Store with an exclusive autographed print. International tour dates will be announced shortly.
About this Album
This single disc includes selections from Leave Your Sleep, Natalie Merchant's double-disc Nonesuch debut, on which she adapts the works of such poets as Ogden Nash, Edward Lear, and E.E. Cummings into a musically kaleidoscopic set of new songs, working with folk, jazz, reggae, and R&B players as well as gorgeously arranged chamber ensembles.
