Close-Up Vol 1, Love Songs

February 11, 2010

Suzanne is reinterpreting and re-recording her catalog in an acoustic, intimate, and personal manner, and releasing them as 4 new thematic albums over the course of 2010-2011.

With her sultry voice, Suzanne Vega seamlessly joins her poetry and contemporary folk song with a sound that is utterly unique and identifiable to her alone. A pioneer among singer-songwriters, Suzanne has embarked on a project to re-imagine her own songbook in a stripped down and intimate manner. The 4 volumes include

“Love Songs,”

“People, Places & Things,”

“States of Being,”

“Songs of Family”

The first is Suzanne Vega Close-Up, Vol 1, Love Songs.

Hello,

Welcome to the first volume of the Close-Up Series. These are songs that I have written over the years and now re-recorded. I wanted to give you, the listener, a small sort of gift. These are the songs I consider love songs, although they are also songs of attraction, flirtation, and confrontation.

Thank you for listening,

With love,

Suzanne

Beauty & Crime

January 22, 2010

About

On Beauty & Crime, Suzanne Vega’s Blue Note Records debut, the Manhattan native uses New York City as the backdrop for a collection of eleven new songs that juxtapose acoustic guitar-driven melodies with coolly synthesized beats; intensely personal lyrics with compelling, short story-like narratives; images of today’s scarred cityscape with memories of Vega’s old Upper West Side ‘hood and Lower East Side haunts.

Beauty & Crime will be released June 5th internationally and July 17th in North America. This is Suzanne’s seventh album and it will be her debut on Blue Note Records.
