Esperanza Spalding Releasing New Album, Radio Music Society

January 6, 2012

Link


On March 20th, 2012, Heads Up International will release Esperanza Spalding’s Radio Music Society, a companion to her 2010 album Chamber Music Society which earned her a Grammy for Best New Artist.

Each of the album’s 12 songs are accompanied by conceptual music videos, shot in various locations including New York City; Barcelona, Spain; and Portland, Oregon; available to purchasers of Radio Music Society as a digital download or a DVD on the deluxe version.

Spalding says about the album:

Originally I thought it would be fun to release a double album…One disc with an intimate, subtle exploration of chamber works and a second one in which jazz musicians explore song forms and melodies that are formatted more along the lines of what we would categorize as ‘pop songs.’

Those are the two things that really interest me, and it intrigues me to think about different presentation approaches while writing each kind of song.

Track List:

"Radio Song"

"Hold On Me"

"Let Her"

"Cinnamon Tree"

"Crowned and Kissed"

"Smile Like That"

"Vague Suspicions"

"Land Of The Free"

"Black Gold"

"City of Roses"

"I Can't Help It" (Stevie Wonder cover)

"Endangered Species"

And thank goodness she stopped letting her 5-year-old cousin design her album covers.

I honestly cried a little bit when I first heard her, for we now have hope for the future. JAZZ ISN'T DEAD, BITCH!

Honestly "Chacarera" is one of the greatest pieces of music that I have ever heard in my entire life. Most complex jazz pieces I can wrap my head around and figure out where it's gonna go, but this piece is all over the place! I can't imagine how long it would take me to learn to sing it. smile

Y'all should look it up.

I'm so effing excited for this new record! nuts

We're in the same boat, but I'm the only one rowing!
