New iTunes exclusive
EP arrives Sept. 23.
By Blurt Staff
En route from My Brightest Diamond — that’s Shara Worden to her parents — is a
new EP she’s called From The Top of the
World (Asthmatic Kitty). While the title track is pulled from her A Thousand Shark’s Teeth album that came
out earlier this year, the remaining material is unreleased and is sung
entirely in French.
Included are two Edith Piaf tunes (“Hymne Á
L’Amour” and “Adieu Mon Coeur”) plus a Kurt Weil/Roger Fernay
composition (“Youkali: Tango Habanera”). Worden is calling the EP “a
love letter to 1930s French music in the form of an EP,” which sounds perfectly
logical to us.
It will be available at iTunes on Sept. 23.
Meanwhile, check out BLURT’s in-depth MBD feature (“Shine On
You Crazy Diamond”) that we published back in June HERE.
