video fix: natalie merchant ‘leave your sleep’
April 18, 2010 MICHAEL KNUDSEN


good evening! it has been seven long years since natalie merchant released an album (during the break she gave birth to her daughter with husband daniel de la calle!) thankfully she’s finally back with an amazing double disc album called leave your sleep which is ‘a collection of songs adapted from poems selected by merchant including pieces by both well-known and obscure writers’ watch the mini-documentary below of ms. merchant discussing all of the work that went into her latest project (she collaborated with 130 musicians on the album!) she’s always been one of my favorites – i adored her in 10,000 maniacs plus all of natalie’s solo work is completely brilliant (1998’s ophelia remains one of my top albums of all-time) she is one of the best singer / songwriters around – make sure to check out her new album – would i steer you guys wrong? popbytes over & out for tonight … xoxo
