CHARMING SONGBIRD COMES INTO SONGWRITING OWN
ON NEW SET DUE NEXT MARCH
Smoky voiced singer Madeleine Peyroux's earthy new album Bare Bones will be released March 10, 2009 on Rounder Records. Peyroux had a hand in writing all the songs on Bare Bones, including collaborations with album producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell), Walter Becker (Steely Dan), Julian Coryell, Joe Henry, David Batteau and Sean Wayland. One song, "I Must Be Saved," was written entirely by Peyroux.
"I'm really happy that I got to write," says Peyroux. "It feels like a new segment, and it's great work. I'm surrounded by beautiful sounds, really honest musicians, really honest playing."
Bare Bones was recorded in Los Angeles at Henson Studios this fall.
