New Double-A-Side-Single, and Album Plans ~ June 23
Acclaimed musician is ready with new recordings and fresh direction
Musician Allison Crowe, one of the world’s great
songwriters and live performers, releases a double-A side
digital single this Summer featuring a piano-based original
song “Arthur” and an interpretation of Patty
Griffin’s “Up to the Mountain (MLK Song)” on
The bicoastal Canadian artist is in pre-production of her eighth album - advancing a series of critically and commercially successful recordings. Her label, Rubenesque Records Ltd., is celebrating ten years of establishment-free creation.
In a recent interview with Helen Jayne
CornerBrooker.com Crowe reveals some of the
creative impetus to her next full-length release. She cites
the heavier, industrial, production sound heard in “from
the choirgirl hotel”-era Tori Amos, and the
recordings of Nine Inch Nails. NIN’s Trent Reznor is also
exemplary as a creator not bound by the corporate
calculation of popular music today.
Recognizing the truth of John Lennon’s lyric, “Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans”, Allison Crowe is giving a window of 12 – 18 months to solve intricate production puzzles with the current album collection of ten songs and a poem, ‘Snow”.
While in pre-production this Summer, Crowe performs a single live show – as part of TNL's Gros Morne Theatre Festival concert series in Cow Head, near her Atlantic home of Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
Allison Crowe’s double-A-side single, “Arthur” and “Up to the Mountain” is set for release next month (July, 2011 – on iTunes et al).
