Suzanne Vega Shares Her Thoughts About New Album On Podcast

Posted by Molli Fire on Tuesday, 22May07

Suzanne Vega is back with a new album out on June 5th. Beauty & Crime is her 7th album but, marks Vega’s debut on Blue Note Records.

Suzanne Vega - Beauty And Crime - NYC

Tracklist

1.Zephyr & I
2.Ludlow Street
3.New York Is A Woman
4.Pornographer’s Dream
5.Frank & Ava
6.Edith Wharton’s Figurines
7.Bound
8.Unbound
9.As You Are Now
10.Angel’s Doorway
11.Anniversary

The album is a narrative about her personal experiences in Spanish Harlem, Manhattan, and all around the city of New York where she grew up and still resides. The album sounds like a storybook map of NYC as read by Vega herself. The album has hard luck, love, even graffiti, as well as an all-star cast of musicians and producers:

Will Malone (Dido, Seal, Corrine Bailey Rae) – orchestral arranger
KT Tunstall – background vocals and vocal arranger
Gerry Leonard (David Bowie) and Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth) on guitars
Tony Shanahan (Patti Smith) – bassist

Plus og members of Suzanne’s band, Mike Visceglia on bass guitar and Doug Yowell on drums.

Well right now you can grab a video podcast of Vega describing her experiences and thoughts about making this album and shedding even more light on the narrative that Beauty & Crime offers about growing up in NYC.
Alas, this is another iTunes only podcast, so if you use this format, go get it. And, as usual, if that link does not work, please let me know…
Enjoy Wanbli! I am also looking forward to this album very much. It has been too long since we heard Ms. Vega’s sultry voice.
