“An unexpected masterpiece 4 Stars!”

November 29, 2016

Lover, Beloved: Songs From An Evening With Carson McCullers, OUT NOW!

Here are a few reviews…

“An unexpected masterpiece 4 Stars” -R2 Magazine

“One wryly perceptive American writer inhabiting the mindspace of another. Hot-jazz putdown tracks, as well as heartbroken ballads.” – NY Times

“A journey through literary luminary’s life and work…packed with more literary references than seems feasible.” – Rolling Stone

“A resounding success.  The music here is a testament to the power of the art from both women. For her part, more than 30 years after her first album’s release, Suzanne Vega continues to offer up surprises.” ABC News

“The 10 songs can be qualified as an authentic return to grace… you don’t even need to understand the literary background to enjoy the music… which proves how elegant this is ” – Telerama

“Ambitious, but persuasive piece of work! 4 stars” – Written In Music (NL)

“The album has the kind of of-the-times atmosphere and smart lyricism that makes for compelling listening and Vega captures McCullers’ wit, poetic sensibility and bitchiness brilliantly.” – Scotland Herald

“In her own way, Suzanne Vega is an amazing storyteller… you need to dive in the charm of these songs.”- Les échos

“4 Stars” -Lust For Life (NL)

New Album-Lover, Beloved: Songs From An Evening With Carson McCullers

September 29, 2016

On October 14th, Suzanne Vega is releasing her latest album, Lover, Beloved: Songs from an Evening with Carson McCullers, 10 songs about the enigmatic author Carson McCullers, taken from the upcoming play written by Ms. Vega. The original songs were written by Suzanne Vega and Tony-winning composer Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening, American Psycho.) Lover, Beloved: Songs from an Evening with Carson McCullers is a musical portrait to one of the most important figures in American literature.

“Lover, Beloved: Songs From An Evening With Carson McCullers” To Be Released October 14

One of contemporary music’s most iconic singer/songwriters, Suzanne Vega, will celebrate the remarkable life of another distinguished writer, Carson McCullers, when she releases a new studio album inspired by the novelist entitled “Lover, Beloved: Songs from an Evening with Carson McCullers” on her own Amanuensis Productions on October 14, 2016.

The songs, which she co-wrote with longtime friend and theatrical collaborator Duncan Sheik, richly capture the essence of McCuller’s insightful words and forward-thinking philosophies on gender and love. “I feel that McCullers’ ideas and thoughts are very modern,” Vega says, “and she incarnates them in a way that other authors don’t. She tried to live them and paid a price for it.”

In addition to releasing the new Carson McCullers-inspired album, Vega will also premiere a new production of her play “Lover, Beloved: An Evening With Carson McCullers” in Los Angeles on October 21. Vega will also embark on a US and European tour this fall, performing many of the songs from “Lover, Beloved” as well as fan favorites from her songbook.

You can pre-Order the CD and LP (and limited signed CDs), at SuzanneVega.com and you can pre-order the digital download at iTunes and get the instant grat track “Harper Lee”!
