Nancy Sinatra: il nuovo album

526

“[…] the music was not created to sit in a vault,
it is meant to be shared and heard.
Songs get lonely with nobody to listen to them”. Parola di Nancy Sinatra. Che a 73 anni decide di pubblicare un nuovo album – ‘Shifting Gears’ – che sarà fuori il 3 dicembre via Boots Enterprises. L’artista americana lo ha assemblato e curato negli ultimi cinque anni, in una vera e propria operazione di rispolvero d’archivio e il risultato è un disco di rivisitazioni assolutamente gustose: “It’s been a real struggle because when we say ‘vault’ we really mean ‘garage,’ which is where the tapes were for decades before we had the vault. Some were multi-track, some were 1/4 inch and some were only cassettes!”. Le tracce originali furono prodotte da Billy Strange mentre la compilazione odierna da Michael Lloyd. Ascolta ‘Holly Holy‘.
